Which could easily be adapted to say...

...Within a couple of decades the few traditional radios that remain
will be seen as inefficient and unnecessarily dangerous, interesting
to look at though few will want to operate one!...

Just a few nuts like us who truly appreciate the item and its history
will be left. and no doubt, "normal" people will think we're nuts for
playing with this inefficient, dangerous old junk. We're probably
pretty close to this now, when you consider the number of us vs. them.

Makes you wonder what the former owners of some of our radio relics
were thinking, hmm? Also puts things into perspective with respect to
future perceived value, as well as interest.

Smoke 'em if ya got 'em!
