Photograph caption dated October 1, 1963 reads "Because of the lack of an adequate showroom at the present time, Canoga Chrysler in Canoga Park had their new car showing in a circus tent. It wasn't just a circus tent but the most dazzling red and white striped canvas showroom ever seen in the West Valley. Shown standing in front of the newest Chrysler products are new car sales manager Dick Powels and owner Fred Tremiti. The red and white tent made a very interesting spectacle as it stood over three stories high and could be seen for blocks."
