Plain and simple: currently flying around vs. not around anymore --> high quality standard vs. lower quality standard. I am sure you are aware of this.

Would you think this one would have been accepted if it was still around today?

Your Saab pic is on the grainy side, there are dirt marks on the tail (dust) and the forward fuselage is hot. All mentioded things can be fixed. I am sure that if you rework the original it has a very good chance of acceptance.
You do not need digital to get pics accepted here, just a be very critical during editing. Judging from your other pictures, you know how to do it!

Good luck

The whites on the fuselage look blown out and the sky is pretty grainy.
