Racing track Collection
Along with the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track set (sold individually). Even though it could be updated during the years, the first trail consisted of a string of brightly colored orange road sections (pieced together to form an oblong( circular race track), together with a single (or sometimes two) “super hitter” (artificial service stations through which cars passed on the tracks, including battery-powered spinning wheels( which could propel the cars across the tracks).
Through time, Hot Wheels cars have been collected mostly by children, but in the last 15 years[vague] there has been an increase in the amount of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with all the toys, the normal collector has over 1,550 cars, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have an average of 41 cars. Most believe the collecting craze started with the Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss has been known as the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he has arranged two collectors’ events annually in some sort since 1986. The first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held every year in the fall. The conference occurred in various locations around the nation until 2001, when the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was put together. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate one of cities out of California throughout the spring. Strauss has also published the quarterly Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been among the very first to unite collectors all over the world. In addition, he writes the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, auto descriptions and values, which is used by virtually every collector to learn more about the hobby and their collection. Strauss sold his collection from 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
