The United States Postal Service Releases New Hot Rods Forever Stamps
For a little over a year, the USPS has been offering the Muscle Cars forever stamps featuring five iconic automobiles: the 1966 Pontiac GTO, the 1967 Shelby GT-500, the 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona, the 1970 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda, and the 1970 Chevelle SS. As of this writing, they are still available, so get them while they last.
Beginning June 6, 2014, the United States Postal Service released the new Hot Rods forever stamps. In this offering, the USPS is featuring two versions of a well known hot rod, the 1932 Ford “Deuce” roadster. One is facing away, in black with orange flames running down the car’s body, and the other is facing forward, in red. Both are sporting a USA license plate.
Designed by Art director Derry Noyes and featuring art by John Mattos, these stamps are a nice personal touch for anyone in the auto industry or for classic car fans in general. Similar to the Muscle Cars collector pieces, the more serious aficionado will appreciate the additional framed Hot Rods Art piece, a Hot Rods Digital Color Postmark Keepsake, and Ceremony program.
These stamps, along with the previous automotive stamp collections starting back in 2005, do a wonderful job capturing the beauty of these fine vehicles on such a small canvas. We hope this tradition continues to bring honor and attention to the heritage of the classic cars of our past and present.
