Retro Websites

I really like websites that are oldschool or deal with retro topics. If one is both, that's even better.

By oldschool, I mean sites that are filled with text in serif type without any unnecessary spacing, low-contrast font color or JavaScript. I do find many modern web pages visually pleasing, but for the fun of information gathering and navigation, I really like plain old HTML pages. Maybe this is nostalgia, may be this is because I like reading print books.

Please note that this is about the looks and the quality of the information only. Regarding the implementation, I support modern ideas like Responsive Design (page fits any screen size automatically), Semantic Markup (ditch some oldschool workarounds like using H1 for subheadings just because you wanted them to appear larger) and Open Web Standards (don't use Flash, for instance).
