I want to build a cool-looking device: Suggestions?

Hey guys I'm in the mood for an electronics project. Most of my projects end up getting destroyed because I want the parts for other projects, so I want to build something that'll look cool enough to stick around. It can have any (interesting) function and a vintage/retro look would be ideal. Redirection to Instructables I couldn't find on my own would be great, and keep in mind that I'm not an expert builder. Thanks!

Not to big myself up, but if you check out most my projects, specifically the weaponry, there are alot of simple ways to achieve this. The main thing to learn is how much a difference a paint job can make.

On the last page I suggest adding lights, it would be cool to see what you can come up with :)
