A-10?
OV-10?
OV-1?
SR-71? (Technically, not a warbird)

Do I have to pay for the fuel and maintenance?

Really a hard question... I like birds from multiple countries and wars throughout history.

The only correct answer to this question is B-36J series III featherweight.

A distant second would be Spitfire MkV or earlier.

There was a Blackbird pilot who spoke last year at Oshkosh. He said that they overflew Vietnam regularly. Does that count? :)

Far and away... hands down... no contest... the Aeronca L-3 or Piper L-4. I could be wrong but they may be the least responsible for deaths... ;)

Rules clarification:

Could I pass on having a warbird, and just have Bob Hoover as my personal flight instructor instead?

Since P-38, F7F, F4U and P-47 are taken, I wouldn't mind a glass nose A-26 Invader. Single pilot 4000HP with plenty of room for a few friends.

...Of course, an HU-16 could be fun for those impromptu trips to the Bahamas...
