It was the local Ferrari dealer. We only got to work on one car a week or so; I ended up leaving purely out of boredom, lol.

I am so jealous. Ferrari's are excellent machines to play with, was it an Enzo Ferrari?

This was a long time before the Enzo was produced; I can't remember exactly what year this was, off the top of my head, but the F50's production run had just ended a year or two prior. The F355, 550, and 456M GT were in production at the time.

I think Cryptic is a little confused on the difference between pay to play and free to play.

I am all for selling a few bonus things or quality of life items in the store, like Character slots or name changes.

But when you keep putting the new content items in the store....I wonder why we are paying a sub.

Everything that is in the store, except things like name changes and character slots, should be gainable in game. If from accolades, tokens, time played...whatever. We shouldn't be expected to pay for content we are already paying for in our subs. We shouldn't even be asked.

I don't want to see the game fail, but we have to draw the line somewhere.

I hear the ship is a menace, and if what I have heard/seen is accurate then people are actually paying 20 bucks for an in-game advantage. That, to me, is a big no-no. Cosmetics or things that don't give anyone an upperhand are fine. But how well you can do in-game should never be defined by how much you can spend. Even if I can afford to buy advantages, it ruins the game to make it so.
THIS! OMG THIS! I have always felt that the micro-transacting would not be successful in the American market because we don't want to have elite items only on the c-store, it creates a pay to win feeling that I despise as do others I'm sure. However it doesn't even feel like pay to win for most c-store ships because they mostly fail to measure up with the only exception being the Excelsior. So instead of pay to win which players dislike for its discrimination against the poor people who can't afford cryptic points, we get this pay to fail stuff? Seriously Cryptic WTF Mate?
