1950s "Cadillac" kitchen countertop

I am moving into a house that has a very cool, very retro kitchen. The cabinets are made of metal with sliding glass doors and everything has that curvy look so popular in 1950s cadillacs and t-birds. I think the former owners never used the kitchen as everything is in perfect shape except the countertop. The coutertop surface is a red matte linoleum with a metal edge. I would like to find the same surface in the same color. Does anyone have any ideas as to where I can find this type of surface? Do I just look at laminates or is there a specialist provider for people who are restoring retro ki

Color ideas

We used a color called Belgian Waffle for the kitchen (I'm afraid I can't remember the brand, but a knowledgeable paint guy at Lowes might know). I love it. it's quite a retro color, a rich buttery yellow, but it's not too garish.
And by all means do a different color in every room, it breaks the place up and makes it seem bigger. we have a yellow kitchen and hallway, celery green bedroom, mushroom living room, pale blue bathroom, and the piece de resistance is a deep red dining room.

Some ideas

Well, one of the things I once got was a small TV, which I had sort of hinted at for the kitchen...
But along less hinted at lines, a nice bottle of wine and two Riedel wine glasses are great. After a day of moving in, getting settled, they can sit down with some wine and fine glasses (about $50 for a pair).
And orchid is nice as well, but only if they are plant people--some people hate any houseplants.
Also, I dont know how hot it is, and summer is almost over, but those retro Vornado fans are terrific.
