Since it began 26 years ago, Dana Mecum’s Original Spring Classic Auction in Indianapolis has featured the largest auction of muscle cars in the world. This year, USPS will celebrate the raw power of the performance vehicle at the Spring Classic event by dedicating five, limited-edition stamps featuring iconic muscle cars: the 1966 Pontiac GTO, 1967 Shelby GT-500, 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona, 1970 Plymouth Hemi ‘Cuda and 1970 Chevelle SS.
The Spring Classic Auction will take place from May 14 to May 19, 2013, at the Indiana State Fairgrounds (1202 E 38th St, Indianapolis, IN). Gates open daily Tuesday through Sunday at 9 a.m. Greater Indiana District Manager, Operations Programs Support Dale Sparks will dedicate the five Muscle Car stamps at a ceremony scheduled for Wednesday, May 15, at 11 a.m. EDT.
The third in the America on the Move series, the Muscle Cars stamps are being issued as Forever® stamps in self-adhesive sheets of 20 stamps (four stamps of each design). Forever stamps are always equal in value to the First-Class Mail one-ounce price, which currently is 46 cents. You can find the Muscle Cars stamps online, by called 1-800-STAMP24, or in a Post Office near you.
