Hot Rod Stamps Hit the Streets

Jun 9, 2014

A new line of stamps celebrating hot rods has hit the streets.

The U.S. Postal Service has unveiled its Hot Rods Forever Stamps. The stamps depict two 1932 Ford “Deuce” roadsters-a black ’32 Ford with orange flames and a red ’32.

The first-day-of-issue dedication ceremony took place at the National Street Rod Association Street Rod Nationals East Plus at the York Expo Center in York, Pa., according to a press release. They are available in 20-stamp booklets.

“These Hot Rods stamps mark the beginning of America’s fascination with customizing fast cars, said Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe. “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.”

Designed by Derry Noyes of Washington D.C., the two stamps were digitally created by artist John Mattos of San Francisco, the release noted.
