stamps: hot rods

Image from:

Hot Rods, the fast, powerful vehicles that thrill-seeking enthusiasts have been modifying for nearly a century, are celebrated on these two eye-popping stamps.

Hot rodding first took hold in the 1920s, when young men began modifying their cars. Aficionados souped up engines, lowered chassis, chopped bodies, and cut excess weight, creating light, fierce machines that looked and moved unlike anything that had rolled off assembly lines.

Art director Derry Noyes designed the stamps, which feature art by John Mattos.

The Hot Rods stamps are being issued as Forever® stamps.
