53rd Annual Duryea Day (2018)

Recommended Posts

The Duryea Day Car Show was today which is presented by Pottstown Region AACA and the Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles.

Turnout today was lighter than the normal 600-700 cars. Concerns about potential rain today, and soggy field conditions from yesterday's heavy flooding rains around the area may have kept cars away. While it was cloudy all day it did not rain. The vast majority of the field was very firm.

 

I thought some here might enjoy the following photos.

Thank you very much for posting the photos, Charlie.  Very nice.  Some quite unusual or seldom seen marques there.  Always like the variety of vehicles at Duryea Days.

 

Perfect photo day for you.  Overcast really diminished sun glare and brought out the vehicle detail and colors.

 

Regards,

Peter,

 

I had hoped to see you there today but I guess it was not meant to be.You are absolutely right about the quite unusual or seldom seen marques there today.

FYI, the Red Barracuda (2nd to last photo) had some documents on it that said it was ALL ORIGINAL still owned by the original owner. I got a kick out of the original . two tone Met. The owner told me he got tired of people telling him he should "put a big V8 in it". So he did. If you look close there is a Big bottle of V8 under the hood.

Thank goodness for the clouds and breeze. It made the humidity bearable. Speaking of V8s, the trike in the photo has a small block Chevy engine in it as did the red Corvair race car. Lots of original cars there today but the modified ones were interesting to look at as well.

That is what makes Duryea Days unique.  The creativity of modified co-mingling with the purist'  Last year I had the TR6 in the Foreign Car class of course and right in front of me was a really neat Rat Rod.  The owners creative mind was amazing.  I sat there for quite awhile and the owner was busy all day talking with visitors.  Nice to witness as he was on cloud nine interfacing with visitors.

 

Again, thank you,

 

Peter J.
