My favorite "Retro awful": Site:

https://www.lingscars.com/






I remember how she was ridiculed on Dragon's Den,yet she's the one employing a bunch of people and having a successful business. I remember reading that she's even hired someone to do some maintenance in the town,because the local council couldn't afford it anymore.

this one looks very retro but the code is actually quite modern. it has custom fonts, css animations, gradients, etc. and no tables.

Also, beneath the intentional craziness, it's very clever marketing.

It's like the visual equivalent of chiptunes.
