yes they still make them... and, for what it's worth, they're a valuable 
asset to have outboard of your digital system.  if your workstation goes 
down, most studios still rely on trusty old reel-to-reel machines, and yes, 
the "dinosaur" harmonizers.  
plus, i have to admit that the inboard devices are still not perfected to the 
point where you can or cannot tell if a time-squeeze program was used...  
you'll hear more of a warble effect if the attempt to compress is too great 
for the system.
i've worked with both, inboard and outboard:  definitely find the outboard 
more versatile.
of course, i still have a yellow grease pencil, edit-all block, and two brand 
new blades in my briefcase, just waitin' to cut tape if i have to...
