[RaceSimCentral] The Retro Epidemic: Bring it On

Old school race cars have played a small but significant role in the history of racing games. Grand Prix Legends was a revolution in sim racing... and GT Legends created quite a stir within the modding community when it came out... But for the most part, classic vehicles are usually glossed over in favor of modern cars when a new game is released... Recently though, things have started to change.

I spent the late '70s and early '80s hammering around Euope in a Triumph TR7 Victory edition. I would love to see that car and others from that period, like the Opal GT and Fiat X19 (there was a really sharp Renault too, but its name/model escapes me now) added to one of the really good racing games.
