hot wheels gran turismo – Hot Wheels 2016 Gran Turismo (COMPLETE SET OF 8 CARS)
Hot Wheels is a new 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale die-cast toy cars introduced by American toy maker Mattel in 1968. It had been the key competitor of Matchbox until 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Although Hot Wheels were initially meant for children and young adults, they have become popular with adult lovers, for whom limited edition models are currently made available.
Racing track set
In addition to the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track record (sold individually). Even though it could be updated throughout the years, the first track consisted of a collection of brightly colored orange street sections (pieced together to make an oblong( circular race track), using a single (or occasionally two) “super chargers” (faux service channels by which cars passed on the paths, including battery-powered spinning wheels, which could propel the cars across the tracks).
Through the years, Hot Wheels cars are gathered mostly by children, but at the last 15 years[vague] there’s been an increase in the amount of adult collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with all the toys, the average collector has over 1,550 automobiles, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have a mean of 41 cars. Most consider the collecting trend started with the Treasure Hunts in 1995. Mike Strauss was called the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he’s organized two collectors’ events annually in some sort since 1986. The first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held every year in the fall. The convention occurred in various locations around the country before 2001, once the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was set together. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities outside of California through the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been among the first to combine collectors all around the world. He also writes the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, car descriptions and values, which can be used by nearly every collector to find out more about the hobby along with their own collection. Strauss sold his set from 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
