BACKGROUND

Designed by Derry Noyes of Washington, DC, the two stamps were digitally created by artist   John Mattos of San Francisco. Each stamp features an iconic 1932 Ford “Deuce” roadster and honor America’s pastime of customizing cars, which became very popular in the 1950s when hot rodding reached its peak.

 

The ceremony kicks-off with a 1950s-themed sock hop performance to help pay tribute to an era when hot rodding took car enthusiasts by storm. Donahoe will serve as the dedicating official alongside Meguiar who will speak to the importance of hot rodding in American culture. Interview opportunities will be available either onsite or via phone with Donahoe and Meguiar.

 

The stamps can be ordered now at this link for delivery shortly after June 6.
