On 3rd August 2010, Jersey Post will issue the fourth set of stamps in the series entitled 'Vintage Cars'.

The first motor car arrived in Jersey at the end of the nineteenth century and shortly after, in 1908, the 'First Annual Parade' of the Jersey Motor Association took pace.

Vintage car cavalcades are, to this day, a familiar sight in Jersey and, often, the fine old motors are complemented by their drivers in striped blazers, boaters and bonnets and they never fail to turn heads as they motor around the Island.

The stamps feature:

39p - 1912 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost
45p - 1926 Bugatti Type 37
55p - 1933 Austin 7
60p - 1938 Citroen Light 15 Roadster
72p - 1946 Morris 10/4 Saloon
80p - 1949 Rover 75 Sports Saloon
