Postal stamp dreams of vintage cars in the Congo

These stamps of classic cars are from the Congo. The Congo is not the first thing that comes to mind when you think about classic touring and race cars. Mind you, this is the Republic of Congo, not the big crazy Congo of Ali vs. Foreman, the Concorde landing strip in the jungle and the Second Congo War: that’s the Democratic Republic of Congo. The Republic of Congo is slightly less crazy. That said, rumbling along its roads in the red MG MGA (bottom row, middle) would still be a weekend to remember.
