Olympus XA, Pentax K1000, Canon F1, EOS1N, Olympus OM1N, OM2N, OM4 ... in fact, virtually every film camera that is now out of production and more than 20 years old is a classic by definition.

Chamonix LF cameras... the current versions.
Rollei, any version of the 35. I just ran a roll of one of my last Plus - X through my SE today.
I'll also vote "anything" - but it would be nice to be able to shoot at all its shutter speeds....
I'll go for the Canon F-1.
If we're going to include electronic cameras, how about these Pentax beauties...

-I'd argue for the Nikon FM3a - its hybrid shutter control makes it both a fully mechanical camera not reliant on batteries to do its thing AND a modern AE-equipped, electronic shutter control MF camera.
That aside, the build quality is terrific, handling is great and the built-in center-weighted meter works very well.
Yup, the FM3a is likely to become a classic somewhere down the line. (I guess one can argue that it already IS a classic, albeit a very recent one!)
