USPS releases new line of stamps, tribute to muscle cars

Posted: Updated:

The United States Postal Service has released an new line of stamps dedicated to the muscle cars of the late 60's and early 70's.  The stamps feature five iconic muscle cars: the '66 Pontiac GTO, the '67 Shelby GT-500, the '69 Dodge Charger Daytona, the '70 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda and the '70 Chevelle SS.  The stamps are available at Post Offices across the country today. NASCAR legends Richard and Kyle Petty will dedicate the series tonight at the Daytona 500 track in Florida.

The Muscle Cars Forever stamps are the third issuance in the America on the Move stamp series. Tom Fritz of Newbury Park, CA, created the artwork under the art direction of Carl T. Herrman of North Las Vegas, NV. Other issuances in the series, ‘50s Sporty Cars (2005), followed by ‘50s Fins and Chrome (2008), were the work of artist Art Fitzpatrick of Carlsbad, CA. 

The stamp can be ordered online at:  www.usps.com/stamps
