Mike Strauss was called the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he has organized two collectors’ events annually in some sort since 1986.

The convention occurred in a variety of locations around the country before 2001, once the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was assembled 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 was among the first to unite collectors all over the world. In addition, he writes on the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a book listing history, automobile descriptions and values, which is used by virtually every collector to learn more about the hobby and also their collection. Strauss sold his set from 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
