I am pleased to see the increasing number of TT threads. I am particularly interested in TT subjects as I have had one for 40 years and am currently building another…particularly because I live on a farm. I sense that the TT is becoming more popular because other Ts are possibly becoming less available and the TT is being discovered as a fun project. The TT has had many years of production and custom bodies and auxiliary equipment which lends to many interesting configurations. I hope there are more projects coming on the Forum. Of course there is the MTFCI where there is supposed to be a TT section, but I think this forum is more active.

Hi John - You're absolutely right.

I hope with this expanded interest that we'll learn more about TT's and when changes were made in them.

A question I've raised a few times is that TT's were made for some time after T car production stopped in May, 1927, but no one seems to know when or at what plant that TT production finally ended.

Does anyone know?

I really look forward to more and more TT information.

Keith

I too agree with your comments John, particularly the, "Used and useful TT" comment.

I think TT's provide a very clear and unique insight into the transition of 100 years ago as we went from horse drawn vehicles to motorized vehicles. We always talk about how slow our TT's are and try to find ways to speed them up, but the slow speed they were manufactured with and the fact that so many were sold is testimony to the transition itself. A very consistent 15 MPH with a load was really moving in the eyes of the original drivers of these trucks.

My TT is currently a Model T parts storage container, the bed is full of stuff.

If I ever get it running, I'll have to completely re-organize the garage.

I have always been attracted to the TT's because I can USE them in an as-intended application. I will build mine for higher speeds, but it WILL have the wheels driven off it. No car shows, no cutesy stuff. Just hay bales, wood loads, rusty salvage, and plenty of time warp plugging up of traffic for the commuter drones ! :-)

I'm becoming more interested in the TT. I never see any photos or info on their production though. Were they built on a separate line or plant? I always see pics and videos of Ts streaming out of the Highland Park plant but , never the TT.

I was hoping that this thread would inspire interest in showing your TTs and any good information about the development and production of TTs. I probably should have made the subject *Show us your TTs*. Don't know how to start a TT thread.
