P Or T

So, which plane would you rather have? Above is a P-51 Mustang, a fighter plane used during World War II and rare as hen's teeth these days. They go for probably a million or so bucks, if you can find one for sale. They made thousands and thousands of them, but only a handful remain. Or you could have the T-51 Mustang shown below. It looks very similar, but it's actually classified as a light sport aircraft and is built from a kit. It's powered by a Suzuki engine and screams like a banshee. I think it's a hard call. Maybe one of each?

Whoops, sorry. The plane at the top, Crazy Horse, is actually a TF-51, or the trainer version of a P-51. It's got dual controls so it can be used as a trainer. These planes just confuse me sometimes...
