The street rods are returning to York in June, and this year’s event will include two new car-themed stamps issued by the U.S. Postal Service.

Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe and Barry Meguiar, host of the TV show “Car Crazy,” will be in York to unveil the Forever stamps at 11 a.m. June 6 as part of the 41st annual Street Rod Nationals East Plus at the York Expo Center.
