This thread seems to have lost its way and apparently has a personal "owner". Perhaps it's time to start a new one with a meaningful title -- one without cars.

I had a choice between three 10Ts or two 10Ts and a CC5 behind a large AT screen. Michael Kelly advised me to go with the CC5 center rather than the third 10T. No regrets.
