In fact, based on its declining revenues, very few people hang around the Post Office these days, or even use its services. That’s why we’re bringing you news of a new series of “America on the Move” stamps, called “Muscle Cars Forever.”
The limited-edition “Forever” stamps (meaning that you can use them to mail a first class letter, as long as there’s still a Postal Service) go on sale tomorrow, February 22, and honor the tire-smoking glory of the 1966 Pontiac GTO, the 1967 Shelby GT-500, the 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona, the 1970 Plymouth Hemi ‘Cuda and the 1970 Chevelle SS.
Collectors can also buy uncut press sheets, first day covers, a set of five digital color postmarks and a ceremony program, too, all via the USPS website. Though the Postal Service has offered poster-sized artwork in the past, it doesn’t sound like prints of the Muscle Car series will be produced or marketed.
The Muscle Cars Forever series joins two other car-themed collections, “50s Sporty Cars” (released in 2005) and “50s Fins and Chrome” (released in 2008) in the “America on the Move” series.
While we can’t predict if the USPS-issued Hemi ‘Cuda will ever appreciate as much as the Plymouth-minted version, one thing is certain: the Postal Service ‘Cuda is the only one our bank accounts can handle.
