Denver's premier automobile showroom is a three-story Deco Gothic building dressed in terracotta. Splendid stained glass windows, including transoms with Chrysler's winged wheel logo, are framed by fluted pilasters that culminate in roof-top finials. Converted to a sporting goods store in the 1970s, the building now contains an artificial ski slope on the interior auto ramp and a roof-top tennis court.
