My Current AE-1 program that I have used for 6ish years (it's been in the family much longer) maybe non-functional, I'll need to pop in a new battery to test it. I have a small collection of FD lenses; 28mm/2.8, 50mm/1.8, 75-200/4.5, and a 2x converter. It would only make sense to get another FD mount Canon. I guess what I'm trying to get at is do I go for a nice, quality AE-1 series again, or a slightly less quality higher end SLR? It should be noted that I'm a 22 year old dishwasher, needless to say the words "disposable" and "income" generally don't occupy the same sentence.
