Postal News: USPS issues Hot Rods Forever stamps

June 25, 2014
By KATHLEEN SWANSON , Lehigh Acres Citizen

The U.S. Postal Service celebrates the fast, powerful vehicles thrill-seeking enthusiasts have been modifying for nearly a century by dedicating the limited-edition Hot Rods Forever stamps.

The stamps depict two 1932 Ford "Deuce" roadsters - a black '32 Ford with orange flames running down the car's body - and a red '32 Ford.

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

The hot rod culture is vibrant today, with monthlies like Hot Rod magazine and organizations like the National Street Rod Association helping keep the flame alive.

Customers may view this year's other stamps at Facebook facebook.com/USPSStamps, Twitter@USPSstamps, Pinterest pinterest.com/uspsstamps, Instagram instagram.com/uspostalservice or on uspsstamps.com, the Postal Service's online site for information on upcoming stamp subjects, first-day-of-issue events and other philatelic news.

Kathleen Swanson is a spokeswoman for U.S. Postal Service.
