MUSCLE CAR STAMPS | 1970s CHEVELLES SS, HEMI 'CUDA, DODGE CHARGER & CO: FREEDOM, ADVENTURE AND BURNING RUBBER

this new MUSCLE CAR stamp set is the next one in the series “AMERICA ON THE MOVE” which started in 2005 with sport cars of the 50s. the second in 2008 was a set with classic tail-fin cars “FINS AND CHROME”. the actual muscle car pictures were made by TOM FRITZ, a californian artist who is specialized in car paintings. US POSTAL is advertising the stamp set with the slogan “FREEDOM, ADVENTURE AND BURNING RUBBER” – great! the stamps have no value – the print FOREVER means that they can be used without a time limit. one stamp has the price of 46 cent, the so called FIRST-CLASS-RATE for usual letters or postcards. even if the price will raise the stamps can be used. pics | spiegel.de _ paintings | TOM FRITZ

LTG FAVORITES #91 | D-A-D – ROCKIN DANISH DYNAMITE

this night i will see one of my absolute favorite bands, i don't know, maybe for the 10th time. it is a pitty but just 3 old tickets survived all these rockin' nights. it must be in 1991 when i saw the danish guys for the first time. the album RISKN' IT ALL was a revelation to me. D-A-D did rock'n'roll i ever wanted to hear. simple and straight, mixing some metal and country elements ... rockin'! i am excited about what OLLI THE BARBER will say, because he is seeing the band for the first time live tonight. yeah: D-A-D is rockin' the house! pics | D-A-D, LTG

this shot was made in 2004! as a “pic of the editor” for german DYNAMITE! magazine. long time ago. there you can see some of my western boots. it was not the whole collection but the most beloved boots you can see in the front. all boots in the first line are custom made in texas. since i got my femoral neck fractured in a roadbike accident 2007 i do not wear western boots so often. so i sold some not american made boots, but all my LUCCHESEs and custom boots i still own. i would never sell these wonderful boots. pic | LTG
