American motorists are buying trucks at a record pace, but now, pickups have won the stamp approval from the U.S. Postal Service.
The USPS plans to issue four new Forever stamps honoring four classic trucks later this year. The collection offers a look at the evolution of the pickup from the ‘30s through the 1960s. The collection is meant to honor “the rugged and reliable work vehicles that Americans have driven for nearly a century,” the post office explains.
The new series comes as the latest in a long line of stamps meant to honor automobiles. It’s an idea by no means unique to the United States, either, with postal services from Bulgaria to Benin honoring trucks, sports cars, muscle cars and motorcycles over the decades.
