After one of the worst winters in recent memory for much of the country, summer is finally here. It’s time to drop the top, open the sunroof or at least put down the windows and take a long drive.
The United States Postal Service is celebrating the season’s sun in automotive style with two new hot rod Forever stamps.
Both stamps depict classic ’32 Ford hot rods. One shows the car from the front at a low angle in red (pictured above), while the other depicts the car from the back in black with flames running down the side.
To introduce the new stamps on their first day of availability, the USPS went straight to the source at the National Street Rod Association Street Rod Nationals in York, PA. They were unveiled by Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe, Car Crazy host Barry Meguiar and NSRA Special Events Director Jerry Kennedy.
The hot rod stamps are available now in booklets of 20 from your local post office, or they can be purchased online. The Post Office is also selling a framed 7-inch by 9-inch print of the art featured on the stamps for $19.95, through its website.
