Welcome! Lots of TT's around. And they are fun!
Here is one in the classifieds, probably more if you search...

Joe,

Welcome to the forum! You didn't share if you are familiar with T's and TT's or if you are new to both. If you have already driven both T's and TT's that's great -- find the one you like and have fun.

If you are not that familiar with T's and TT's I would recommend you visit the nearest local club and go for some rides etc. Stock T's are slow, stock TT's are slower at least compared to any regular modern car that I know of. And of course speed cost money -- how fast do you want to go? Minor modifications can improve their speed, handling etc. But remember that if you get a "go fast" T or TT be sure to have some brakes that will stop it. I still remember telling a friend before he borrowed my Ford, drive it like it doesn't have brakes and really lead your stops compared to a normal car. He came back and commented it was a lot of fun but he had run a red light because he was not able to stop. Steep hills can make a big difference in performance. Note a 1924-1925 TT looks very similar to the 1926-27 TT as the 1926-27 TT continued to use the 1924-25 hood, radiator, cowl size, bodies, & fenders etc.

Good luck with your search.
