My ride was good bucket list bragging rights but honestly I didn't think it was all that much better than mine. Built by the same people on the same assembly line. Haven't tried it but supposedly the 28 can beat the 51 to 3000 feet.

T 28 is probably the pick... you can kind of afford to fly it. Had a friend with a T6. I had my chance to ride a 51 years ago. Had to drive 100 miles and pay $500 fuel bill. I didn't go...one of my regrets
Is the T6 is the Trainer model? Mary bought me a surprise ride in one for my birthday several years ago. They even let me fly it....WTF we're they thinking???? I've got pics somewhere. It was cool. Is the T6 the baby brother to the 51?

Russ is the smaller one 30 gallons? The large ones are 45. I remember the day the Phillips 66 jobber brought these 2 lubsters to the sand pit 12x12 shop in 1964. Seems like yesterday.
