Best Muscle Cars
By Dave Ashton
Classic cars require a classic hobby. So, why not get started with the very old-school world of stamp collecting via the U.S. Postal Service’s ‘Pony Cars Forever collection.’
As you have guessed, the theme is American pony cars consisting of five classics including the 1969 AMC Javelin SST, 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, 1967 Mercury Cougar XR-7 GT, 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T, and a 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 302.
The Pony Cars Forever collection will be launched at the 2022 Great American Stamp Show on August 25th, then available at post offices and through the Postal Service’s Web portal.
It’s understandable that given the task of picking only five classic pony/muscle cars, means some obvious choices were left out. Some sort of Mustang and Camaro are obvious, as with a Challenger. But, with only two choices left, would you have picked an AMC Javelin and a Mercury Cougar?
Some opinions online have already said there is the obvious exclusion of the Plymouth Barracuda. But, in fairness, there were a bunch of limited edition stamps back in 2013 featuring a Pontiac GTO, Shelby GT500, Dodge Daytona, Hemi Cuda, and obviously a 1970 Chevelle SS. Therefore, we should be celebrating the fact that these stamps are pushing muscle and pony cars to the front of mind of the general population. And, maybe, the inclusion of the Javelin and Cougar may inspire some to dig into the less obvious classics out there.
