T-6 and similar aircraft including fighters are usually "in the grass" somewhere west of the runway and jets.

A good resource would be Warbirds@eaa.org. That will get you who you need to get in contact with.

And we almost ALWAYS have room for Warbirds down in Vintage.....

Maybe I'm mistaken but it sounds like you're suggesting parking for vintage North American T-6 Texan (SNJ).

Don't forget to bring that replacement rudder!

Showing what a small world it truly is, I flew aircraft 994 (the T-6A in this picture, at Lakeland) in to Sun ‘n Fun 2022!

Default T-6 vs T-6A

You are exactly right, Dad's, and I was exactly wrong! Well, almost. The contact information would still be the EAA address and, if that fails, I would be able to provide other sources. The T-6A would be better on the asphalt.
