A can of Spam.

Looks cool = I don't count anything that sounds or tastes good.

Fiat 500 (cinquecento - the original one)

Old sports cars, pickup trucks, fire trucks in general

AK-47

Legos

La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona

Several examples of Japanese and Scandinavian cutlery and cookware from the 1950s

Falling Water

 

 

Maybe I should start a separate one for things that are 50+ years old but look like they were designed yesterday. Of course, the stratocaster guitar again. Frank Lloyd Wright homes. Things like that. Well, why not when you post, say whether you're offering something in the "cool" category I first proposed or in the "looks totally modern today even though it was designed 50+ years ago."
