Postal Service issues hot rod envelope

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The U.S. Postal Service is offering a commemorative envelope this week in Louisville in honor of the 45th annual Street Rod Nationals.

The vintage cars and trucks are returning to Louisville, where the convention runs Thursday through Sunday.

The limited edition envelope features flames, polished chrome and classic details of a traditional hot rod and has the 2014 Hot Rods Forever stamp with one of two 1932 Ford Deuce roadsters.

The envelope and pictorial postmark will be available after the Street Rod parade on Wednesday, then at the Kentucky Exposition Center throughout the convention. The envelopes cost $10.
