I suspect that the survivors are in much better condition than the ones that rusted out, got Cash/klunked, or abused over the past 40 years. They are also very affordable to own and operate, as well as having a following in the old countries, so parts are available. That it shares some parts with the R107 does not hurt. The size is a boon. The W116 is really large, while the /8 can be handled better than that or the R107.
I enjoyed working on my /8, and it does have the classic Sacco and Braq lines.
