Re: just what exactly do you guys mean by "old school"?
The Nakamichi Dragon for the car did NOT flip the tape around that was the home audio Nakamichi RX-202 and RX-505 models. However, the Nak TD-1200/TD-1200II had a drawer that came out of the deck that the tape sat in and had the performance of the home version Dragon. It had no equal other than possibly the Nak TD-850, TD-700 & TD-500, Kenwood KCA-999II, Alpine 7307, and some of the top of the line Concord decks that could actually control tape speed.
