How about "tune-up"? That used to mean making the engine run better by replacing parts. Nowdays, it means almost nothing, since there is nothing on a car engine that can be adjusted. Even the belts are on automatic tensioners.

To "Ring Up" someone, from the magneto signaling days. And many folks still know what a "Party Line" is.
