Default Commemorative Stamps on Cars

Many countries issue commemorative stamps on iconic cars that have been around for long or are simply special.Even Senegal and Monaco have issued stamps a few of which are shown below.
I had been to a stamp exhibition and after seeing some car stamps immediately felt that in India, not a single such stamp has so far been issued.The cars that deserve to be on stamps are the Ambassador, Fiat/Premier Padmini, Jeep/Mahindra CJ 4A and of course the Maruti 800!

Ambassador, Fiat/Premier Padmini
A nice recollection. Thanks for sharing.
But i beg to differ on above. 800 and Mahindra maybe but the above two license raj example are the reason, I feel we are still being cheated.

Above are the reasons, I feel that we petrol heads are deprived of All AMG and Ms and Chevy muscle cars etc which are priced above or near crore rupees.
