Cars - British Auto Legends - Sunday Stamps

The set of British Auto Legends issued on 13 August this year are just right for this week's car theme.

Great Britain - British Auto Legends
These have not scanned very well with the names indistinct and the true colours not shown - the Lotus at the bottom right is red not orange; the Rolls at the top centre is not such a bright blue.

The cars are::

 Top row - first class stamps
  • Jaguar E-type 1961
  • Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow 1965
  • Aston Martin DB6 1963

Bottom row - £1.28

  • MG MGB 1962
  • Morgan Plus 8 1968
  • Lotus Esprit 1976
For more cars just drive over to Viridiand's Sunday-Stamps-142.

I have received just one of this set (the MG MGB 1962). It looks very nice in the blue cover; I'd like to receive all the cars!

I believe one of the participants of Sunday Stamps posted the powder blue MGMGB 1962 and I was really wishing I can see the rest of the series and hola! They're here on your page. Thanks so much for sharing them :)

Yes the timing is perfect. A nice set and I like the fact that the owners brought the cars in to be photographed.

One time in San Francisco a 1980's era fire red Lotus passed me, and I've been in love ever since. :-)
thank you for participating, and showing the whole set.

don't recall this set of stamps, Bob but an interesting selection.
Our son once got to drive an E-type for a day as a competition prize and he took us all out in turns to enjoy the thrill of the ride. You certainly turn heads when you you are out in one of these.

This is a great set, I had to visit several post offices to be able to find them all.

They do look lovely but I somehow managed to miss the day they were issued. Then they were gone.

Hubby owned a Jag around that time and later we owned two MGB's, different dates. Nice to see them on stamps.
