Limited-edition Hot Rods Forever Stamps from US Postal Service
U.S. Postal Service has now released limited-edition Hot Rods Forever Stamps depicting two 1932 Ford “Deuce” roadsters — a black ’32 Ford with orange flames and the other a red ’32 Ford. The first-day-of-issue dedication ceremony was held at National Street Rod Association (NSRA) Street Rod Nationals East Plus at York Expo Center in York, PA.
Limited-edition Hot Rods Forever Stamps are available in booklets of 20 online, via phone at 800-STAMP24 (800-782-6724), at post offices and on eBay stamps.
“These Hot Rods stamps mark the beginning of America’s fascination with customizing fast cars,” said Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe in dedicating the stamps. “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.”
“Car Crazy TV” host Barry Meguiar and NSRA Special Events Director Jerry Kennedy were in attendance at the event. “With an estimated 12 million hot rodders in America today, I applaud the Postal Service for recognizing that Hot Rods will forever be a symbol of our American culture,” said Meguiar.
Both stamps are designed by Derry Noyes of Washington, DC, and digitally created by artist John Mattos of San Francisco.
