Every year the sleepy little town of Boyertown, PA begins to echo with the sound of vintage automobiles. To most of the community this is a welcomed sound and a familiar one for the past 46-some years. This special event is called the Boyertown Duryea Days, and has been a hit with the vintage car community in the area. It is hosted by the Boyertown Auto Museum to help support the automotive community and raise awareness about the museum. We took a drive out to neighboring Boyertown and shot a few photos of some of our favorite cars. We definitely recommend hitting this event if you are local and want to see some seriously cool vintage cars in the future!
