Racing track Collection
Along with the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track set (sold separately). Though it would be upgraded throughout time, the initial trail consisted of a collection of brightly colored orange road sections (pieced together to make an oblong( circular race track), using a single (or sometimes two) “super walkers” (faux service channels by which cars passed on the tracks, including battery-powered spinning wheels, which would propel the cars along the tracks).
During the years, Hot Wheels cars have been collected mostly by kids, but in the past 15 years[vague] there’s been a growth in the number of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with the toys, the normal collector has over 1,550 cars, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have a mean of 41 automobiles. Most consider the collecting craze started with this Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss was called the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he has organized two collectors’ events annually in some form since 1986. The first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, usually held each year at the autumn. The conference occurred in a variety of locations around the country until 2001, when the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was set together. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities outside of California during the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been among the very first to unite collectors all over the world. He also writes on the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, automobile descriptions and worth, which can be used by almost every collector to find out more about the hobby and their collection. Strauss sold his collection from 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
