1911s are like Corvettes, both original American iron. A '63 Stingray is probably the coolest 'Vette ever built, however, an '08 will blow the doors off of it in terms of reliability and performance.
A WWII issue M1911A1 would be one of the coolest guns to own, however a brand new Kimber or Para will blow the doors off of the old school Colt.
