My dad used to perform magic with The Great Beynon in the 1950s in Christchurch. I remember the Beynons had a bright pink Cadillac and it was filled with magic gear and numerous critters used for his magic tricks. I seem to recall there were rabbits, doves and a cute little white dog, maybe even 2 of them.
