Hit the ignition, folks. The Muscle Cars (Forever®) stamps have arrived!

Typically equipped with big, powerful engines, these high-performance vehicles first roared onto our roads in the 1960s. The stamps feature five iconic muscle cars: the 1966 Pontiac GTO, the 1967 Shelby GT-500, the 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona, the 1970 Plymouth Hemi ‘Cuda, and the 1970 Chevelle SS.

Muscle Cars is the third issuance in the America on the Move series. The first two issuances in the series were 50s Sporty Cars (2005) and 50s Fins and Chrome (2008).

Later today, the Muscle Cars stamps will be officially issued at Daytona International Speedway, but they are available now online and in Post Offices around the country. Put the pedal to the metal and get yours today!
