USPS Muscle Cars
« on: September 15, 2022, 01:41:58 PM »
Just thought I would share with those that hadn't seen it yet. New stamps at post office with some awesome cars.

And speaking of awesome cars, it is so much fun watching shows like Adam-12 and seeing 1st gen Camaros everywhere. Yesterday in one show I saw a 68 SS-RS, a 69 convertible and a plain jane 68 CP.

They also have the black '69 Camaro Z/28 as a pin.  Some other cool Camaro stuff from the series to see online.

Too bad the 67 or 68 isn’t there. Guess I’m not buying this round….maybe next round they’ll come to their senses. 😵‍💫😵‍💫😆😆

Bought my sheets today.   The woman that waited on me mentioned they are selling fast.  They are called pony cars by the Post Office, but they left out the Firebird and Cuda.

I always find it disappointing when various models, signs, or, in this case, stamps choose to feature such rare examples of the car.  For example, in 1967 there were 602 Z28 cars, but it seems like about 75% of the memorabilia featuring 67 Camaros is of the Z28.  In 69, there were at least a lot more Z28s made, but still fewer than 10% of the build (so not super representative) ... plus, how many black 69 Z28s were there?  ~100?  So, yippee, there's a stamp for 100 potential owners out there!

Cool stamp and it's nice to see the Camaro in the bunch ... just wish it were a more representative trim and color.

Yea, Vince pointed that out in an earlier post. I still prefer to call the muscle cars.

It looks Fathom Green to me on the actual stamp. The side looks black, but it is all shaded.

For me personally, I wish they had used a Buttermilk Yellow 67 Z-28 for the stamp, but it doesn't bother me that they used a Black 69. I just wish it had red interior! BTW....there were 20,302 Z's built in 1969.

My uncle has the 67 Shelby GT500 stamp. Obviously, cause he has Shelby #790 and my Dad has the 69 Camaro SS. should get him the stamp.
Looking for anything on car 9L512227. Have owned for 28 years, missing original paperwork, #’s matching engine and transmission, and PoP. NCRS DATA 12/12/68 Los Angeles matches as 12B POP and Shipped as special order to Owen Keown Chevrolet Marina Del Rey. Special order because the car is a 71B Conv

Today was the first time that I had stopped in the local post office in Minden, NV and they had these in stock.  Picked up a sheet.
