Sunday Stamps # 142

It's Saturday, Day 12 of the USA government shutdown.  I  was sure that the politicians would come to an agreement before this.  For those keeping track, my daughter's field trip to Washington DC was postponed to the first week in June.  Hopefully everything will be back to normal by then!!

Anyway, time for Sunday Stamps.


Our theme this week is cars.  My contribution is a recent offering from the US Postal Service (still delivering despite the shutdown).

 
These are four "muscle" cars, as they were and are called, beloved of young men then and now.  Clockwise from the top left: the 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona, the 1967 Shelby GT-500, the 1970 Chevelle SS, and the 1966 Pontiac GTO.  All had huge engines with very high horsepower, especially by today's standards.
 
Please join me this week with any car or cars you wish.

Theme next week: Open, anything you wish.

The stamps will most likely be popular too. GB did a set of cars recently too, very difficult to find for sale at the Post Office as they were so popular.
Good news for the field trip.

I have to educate myself about muscle cars. I honestly need a dummy's guide for cars :P

I 've done a set of cars as well; it's the set Lisa mentioned.
Your USA set would go well with it

I find these cars very "American"!

I do like the hot colours and the impression of speed.

I haven't seen any of these ones but maybe they'll turn up soon.

June seems a long way off for the field trip but it's better than seeing places from a distance.
