A lovely addition has been made recently to our postal service, and that addition comes in the form of a new set of commemorative stamps.
Just a couple of weeks ago, on Feb. 22nd, 2013, seven-time NASCAR National Champion Richard Petty, along with his son Kyle, and the Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe, dedicated the limited-edition stamp set that includes several classic car models from the 60’s and 70’s.
The dedication of the stamps took place at the Daytona International Speedway, a site Richard Petty is all too familiar with, as he won a record seven Daytona 500 Championship races.
The cars featured on the limited edition Muscle Cars (Forever®) stamps are the ‘66 Pontiac GTO, the ‘67 Shelby GT-500, the ‘69 Dodge Charger Daytona, the ‘70 Plymouth Hemi ‘Cuda and the ‘70 Chevelle SS - all definitely cars on our favorites list here at Classic Auto.
You can read much more about these stamps, the history of these cars, and the reason these specific cars were chosen to be part of this stamp series in this USPS article.
