I've heard that several of the old Feds during the gangster era carried Colt 1911 .38 Supers because of their penetration qualities against automobiles. I remember reading about one of the famous gangsters that was shot at by the Feds with a Thompson as he was speeding away. They later found the car with bullet hits all over it but none of the .45 ACP rounds penetrated the cabin. Those old car bodies had some pretty thick skin!
