I understand this sentiment, but my most used meter is a Gossen LunaPro (with a battery adapter). I even still use a Weston III on a regular basis. I find that the LunaPro does 80% of my metering needs easily and reliably. I still see value in the older meters... they represent a really good value but not without risk of getting one along the way that has seen better days.
I don't at all. "Working" meters aren't necessarily "accurate" meters, however much you venerate the oldies. With the costs of analog workflow getting pricier, they really amount to a false economy.
