It's week two of the Forza Garage, the traditional week-by-week unveil of the cars in a new Forza title. This week is vintage week and there are some real treats nestled inside.
The headline act is the 1953 Chevrolet Corvette, but many fans will be most interested by the first official Volkswagen cars coming to Forza 7. Having been previously confirmed as making a return to the series, first up is the iconic 1963 Beetle alongside the Type 2 De Luxe and the 1967 Karmann Ghia.
Other brands making an appearance in vintage week are Abarth, Alfa Romeo, Dodge, Fiat, Ford, Jaguar, the Willys Jeep and several others.

I'm liking it so far. I've always preferred the A-Class and lower cars since they respond better to a gentle, smooth driving style. The S-Class and higher cars are too twitchy for me and it feels like playing Rock Band where reflexes are the primary attribute and a slightly missed mark will kill the entire lap. I'm hoping to see more of the '30s - '80s racing cars along with vintage track layouts (no chicanes) on Monza, Spa, Silverstone, etc. The problem with the 700+ car list is many of them will be nothing more than different paints and numbers on the racing cars. The number of unique models is going to be closer to 500 which is still quite a lot.
Compared to Project Cars 2 it's like, 3 games worth of vehicles!
I too find myself concentrating on the A class and lower. It's partially for the reasons you stated, and partially due to the fact that I happen to love old cars.
