Nikon F, Nikon F2, Leicaflexes (pre "R" series). Leica M2/M3/M4, Nikon rangefinders, others.
The all mechanical cameras without electronics can be repaired as long as someone is around to make parts. The electronics in other cameras will eventually crapout, and when replacement parts are no longer available it's bye-bye to that camera.
