Following up on last year's successful issue of collector-edition "American Muscle Cars" stamps, the Unites States Postal Service has released a new set with the theme "Hot Rods Forever." Depicting a pair of classic 1932 Ford roadsters, these newly minted Forever stamps were designed by Derry Noyes of Washington, D.C. and digitally rendered by artist John Mattos of San Francisco. This marks the fourth iteration of an America on the Move stamp series to be commissioned by the USPS. The first, "'50s Sporty Cars" was issued in 2005 followed by "'50s Fins and Chrome" in 2008 and "American Muscle Cars" in 2013.
"These Hot Rods stamps mark the beginning of America's fascination with customizing fast cars," said Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe at their formal introduction at the National Street Rod Association (NSRA) Street Rod Nationals East Plus at the York Expo Center in York, Pennsylvania. "And they're just as popular today as they were decades ago. Just like the cars they celebrate, these stamps are timeless in that they're good for mailing First-Class letters anytime in the future." Available in booklets of 20, the new Hot Rods Forever stamps can be purchased at post offices across the country, online at usps.com/stamps and ebay.com/stamps or by dialing 800-STAMP24 (800-782-6724).
