Marshall Islands issues new stamps featuring Classic Cars

On July 7, 2010, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issued five new stamps featuring Classic Cars from the 1920s and 1930s.

The decade from 1925 to 1935 is remembered worldwide as the Age of the Classic Car. Marvels of styling, mechanical ingenuity, and gleaming opulence: these are America's classic cars. The Duesenberg, luxurious aristocrat of the open road. The Packard, proud symbol of excellence for more than 40 years. The Cord, today venerated as a "classic among classics." The Pierce-Arrow, whose strictly-limited production rarely equaled demand. And, finally, the Locomobile: lesser known but never outclassed, and with an advertising boast of "no stock parts or ready-made units" that defines what a classic is all about. America's classic cars: prized possessions of the wealthy and privileged; beloved vehicles of the American Dream; no less venerated today than when they were built.
