FORT WORTH, TX (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) — The U.S. Postal Service is celebrating Hot Wheels’ 50th anniversary with 20 Forever stamps.

They feature ten of photographer Len Rizzi’s images of the iconic tiny cars. There are two of each in a pane.

A few of the featured vehicles include Purple Passion, a self-explanatory collector favorite; Bone Shaker, a hot rod with a skull for a grille; and the Sharkcruiser, quite literally a cruising shark on wheels.

The iconic tiny cars are pictured on the recognizable bright orange plastic track.

The stamps were issued Tuesday during the Goodguys 26th Summit Racing Lone Star Nationals at Texas Motor Speedway.

Each stamp features the name of the vehicle pictured and the Hot Wheels logo. The back of the pane displays the Hot Wheels’ 50th anniversary logo.

You can get your Hot Wheels forever stamps through the Postal Store, by calling 800-STAMP24 (800-782-6724), or at Post Office locations nationwide.

Forever stamps will always be equal in value to the current First-Class Mail one ounce price.
