New Stamp Series Now Available from U.S. Postal Service
Gearheads who want to add a new meaning to the term “special delivery” had better make a pit stop at the post office. After all, the U.S. Postal Service is now selling a selection of “forever” stamps featuring some of the country’s most memorable muscle cars—including a pair that remains in production today in the form of the 2013 Dodge Charger Daytona and 2013 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500.
All told, five selections will be pushing the envelope for the Postal Service:
Each is based on images created by artist Tom Fritz, who grew up in the muscle-car hotbed of Southern California and considers his original paintings to be “a projection of my memories of the vehicles.”
The postal party line: “Each of these cars represents the adventurous spirit of the muscle-car era. Fast, powerful, and eye-catching, muscle cars roared their way onto America's roads in the 1960s. Typically equipped with big, powerful engines, the five high-performance vehicles depicted on the stamps represent the era's adventurous spirit.”
