The first event was the Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, usually held each year in the autumn. The convention occurred in various locations around the nation until 2001, once the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was placed together. Ever since that time, the Conventions are held each year in southern California. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities out of California through the spring. Strauss has also published the quarterly Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and was among the first to combine collectors all around the world. He also writes the Tomart’s Guide To Hot Wheels, a book listing history, car descriptions and values, which can be used by virtually every collector to find out more about the hobby and their collection. Strauss sold his group from 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
