Recently, I saw a very nice collection of vintage ads posted by Abduzeedo (via Digg). Speaking of vintage design, I also have a nice collection of vintage websites that I dug up from my old bookmarks and Best Web Gallery submissions. I'm not a big fan of vintage design, but if you want to see more vintage inspiration, here are 23+ sites.

Warning: some of the sites that you are about to view might be very old (click at your own risk)

Travel & tour sites like vintage style?

I'm not sure if it is a trend or what, but vintage design seems to be very popular on travel and tour sites. Below are three great samples.

Visit Cascadia

This is one of my favorite sites. The design itself is not so "vintage" (in fact, very eye-catchy), but the designer did a great job on blending vintage elements with modern web design and coding technology.

Cottonseed Oil Tour

Another eye-catchy site. I particularly like the homepage and the highway signs.

Tennessee Vacation

The details spent on this site is extensive. Don't be shy to click around or you will miss out the inner pages (almost every page or section has a different layout).

Sexy models

One common subject, they like to use sexy models. Below are some samples.

Mouse to Minx

This is one of my favorite ecommerce sites. From design to coding, the overall site is nicely done.

Lana Landis (flash)

Ok, this is a very old site. If you have been in the industry for a long time, you have probably seen this site (it was quite popular back then). I first saw it back in 2003 - 2004(?), but she is still looking hot.
