Other examples of "outdated ... nostalgic old junk:" wooden sailboats, 
canvas and wood canoes, plays by William Shakespeare, the blues, '58 
goldtop Les Paul guitars, books printed with letterpress type, brass 
lanterns, 18th-century Chippendale highboys, Eames lounge chairs, any 
house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. All crap, if what you lust after 
is an Cadillac Escalade, I guess.
