WTB: Birchwood motors stuff


Another member's offering of a vintage dealer keychain got me thinking;

It would be really cool to have other vintage Birchwood Motors items, if members have stuff they are willing to part with.

The following attached images should speak for themselves:

Thanks, in advance to anyone who might even consider parting with pieces of their collection.

Just in case someone here knows someone who might have anything, I'd sincerely appreciate any leads ect.

I assume you mean vintage Birchwood Stuff only?

My nephew is a salesman at Birchwood so I might be able to get you some current stuff.

Does anyone know if Denis Verrier is still connected with Birchwood Motors.  I used to lease our Manitoba GM vehicles from him when I was Fleet Manager at Honeywell Canada 1979 to 1993. Would like to reminisce the good old days with him if he is willing.  Bob.

Yup, just vintage stuff - period correct to my car.

Last I heard he was.
I spoke with him on the phone back in 2018 around the time he offered to give me this dealer badge I have.
We casually planned to meet up when he was driving to BC (passing through Calgary iirc) to visit his daughter - but that never happened.

 I was going to comment that yours looks different on account of the yellowed street lamp.

If that's a part of your collection, I won't ask for it on account of having the one that Dennis gave me, but if you aren't really worried about keeping it, I'd be interested in it.

I have some vintage dealer stuff for other dealerships, but only the one badge from Birchwood.  I have a key tag from Brookdale (another Winnipeg GM dealer) probably circa 1980's or early 1990's, and another keytag from Jack Carter probably circa 1970's or 1980's, as well as a couple random Canadian dealership (probably 1990's vintage) owners manual envelopes/packets...

The key tag is neat, but I'd guess it being pretty recent - probably from just before the change over to ten digit dialing.

I think I have seen that ad online.
