Racing track set
Besides the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track record (sold separately). Even though it could be updated throughout time, the first trail consisted of a collection of brightly colored orange street sections (pieced together to make an oblong, circular race track), using one (or sometimes two) “super hitter” (faux service channels through which cars passed onto the paths, including battery-powered spinning wheels( which would propel the cars across the tracks).
Through time, Hot Wheels cars have been collected mostly by children, but at the last 15 years[vague] there has 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 cars, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have a mean of 41 automobiles. Most believe the collecting trend began with this Treasure Hunts in 1995. Mike Strauss has been known as the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he has organized two collectors’ events annually in some sort since 1986. The first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, usually held every year at the fall. The conference occurred in various locations around the country before 2001, once the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was put together. Ever since that time, the Conventions are held every year in southern California. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities outside of California throughout the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been one of the very first to combine collectors all around the world. In addition, he writes on the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, automobile descriptions and values, which is used by nearly every collector to learn more about the hobby along with their own collection. Strauss sold his set in 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
