whats the best GT to get? MTB, BMX, other?

I want to start a GT collection. What do you guys think would be the best of for GT?
Of...

1. Each year. late 80s for sure.
2. Each class. BMX is my fav, although I own a triple, and a RTS.
3. Best Model. Im torn between the Mach One, and the Interceptor.
4. Stock or Mixed parts. I actually like them stock, but some would like upgrades.
5. Best Color Schemes. I like chrome, but have fun with it.
6. Best deals found. CL only.
7. Worst condition finds. just for laughs

pics if you can please.

If you are starting a GT museum, you should have least one representative of the BTT (before triple triangle) era. For their MTB's, I think this may only have lasted one year or so, so they are pretty unusual. Not their best work, but it is part of the story.

p.s., I have a chrome early BTT GT that does not fit me.

that is just a piece of rubber that I duct-taped to the top tube in case the bars swing around; it prevents dents.
