The words ‘vintage’ and ‘retro’ are used interchangeably. In fact, ‘vintage’ means something which originated in the past while ‘retro’ means something which copies the past.

Realizing I had a Vintage Heart put a name on my personal sense of identity, one of the benefits of becoming a fortysomething.
