As “Vintage Week” suggests, you may have noticed all cars on the list were produced before 1970. Notable vehicles in the list include pre-war racers, post-war boulevard cruisers, and some of the most rowdy muscle cars and stunning Italian sports cars in automotive history.

The Forza blog highlighted three cars in particular in order to give the vintage era of motoring a little bit more context. The first car was the 1953 Chevrolet Corvette, a sleek fiberglass sports car created by renowned GM designer Harley Earl. GM’s choice to use fiberglass was not only a fresh weight-saving innovation at the time, it was also a solution to the steel shortage due to the Korean War. To date, the modern Corvette continues to feature a fiberglass body construction.

Next, the 1950 Alfa Romeo 158 was a remarkable triumph for the Italian brand, winning 87 percent of the grand prix races it entered. Driven by the legendary Juan-Manual Fangio and Giuseppe Farina, the only race the 158 failed to win was the Indianapolis 50. Not bad for a competitor with a spunky 1,479cc supercharged straight-8 making 350 horsepower.

Finally, the 1967 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia combined sleek sports car looks with sensible fuel economy. Personally, I don’t find the Ghia all that charming, but it marked one of the most successful collaborations between a German car manufacturer and an Italian design house. The Karmann Ghia was in production for more than 20 years and only saw miniscule design changes to its bumpers, headlights and taillights.

Personally, my favorite car added in the vintage list is the gorgeous 1968 Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale. Significance-wise, the 33 Stradale probably isn’t very important – it never entered any major motorsport event, nor did it spawn a legacy of iconic successors. The car simply exists for itself and represents one of the most beautiful cars Alfa Romeo ever made.
