Be patient! It's worth the waiting around. I'm more for skiing so I wanted the 94-95 era. I also got the LT1 and love it! It would definitely be good to wait a bit for the right one. It's not like you can use it right now anyways.
I also agree with all the others on the 205 vs. 190. I definitely like the 205 space up front much better. And, the 96+ era actually give you more room than mine which is a nice bonus. My friend has a 2000 205 and it feels HUGE compared to mine when considering room. I can't imagine a 190 and wakeboarding in the same sentence.
Also, even the newer 197 open bow is way smaller than the 205's. At least the 205 can fit adults.....the 197 even felt small with 2 of my kids up there, let alone adults.
The last one looks the best of the group you gave. Keep in mind that in 1999, the interior and engine box are a little different. I don't prefer the 99' specifically just for that.
