Don't know if you have seen them, but there are five American Muscle Cars in the series, and they are BEAUTIFUL.  Of course, they are releasing them after the FOREVER stamps go up in price in February.

 

Just thought I'd alert all the stamp collectors who are also model builders.  What are the chances of that combination?

 

Cheers, DC

Searched a little bit and found no pics, but from what I found they'll be the '66 GTO, '67 Shelby GT500, '69 Dodge Charger Daytona, '70 HEMI 'Cuda, and '70 Chevelle.

Nah, they had them in a poster at the post office and I saw it today when I was mailing you your brand new Lab-RAT-ory Mug and "Idea Juice" Paint Mixing Shot Glass! ;)

Hey I identify with that remark. I've been a stamp collector  about 40 years. The big difference between model builders and stamp collectors is that stamp collecting is that nobody tells you that you have more stamps than you will ever be able to use!  The parallel is that stamp collectors are equally concerned that the young aren't entering their hobby and it's becoming an old mans game.

 

I don't get involved in stamp collecting as I did in the 1970s. I don't belong to clubs or go to shows. I don't follow current stamp offerings, and since they're so plentiful and of questionable subject matter, I just don't have an interest.  My own collection is classic issues of the 19th and early 20th century.

Might have to pick these up and frame them and add it to the picture collection for the future "man cave". Just some more eye candy on the wall along with the models.

I have a small stamp collection. This will be a must-have set for me.

 

Thanks for the heads-up.

Here's a hobby cross over piece from my stamp collection.  This is an airmail envelope mailed in 1929 from the REO Motor Car Company to California. I love this old historical stuff, aside from it coming from REO, it was transported in an old prop plane like Lindberg's across the country. If it could only talk!

I have never even had any interest in stamps, or cared what they were, but I found these at the post office. I saw them and said "Hey, I'll take those ones!"
