Racing track set

In addition to the cars themselves, Mattel made a racing track record (sold separately). Even though it would be upgraded throughout the years, the initial track consisted of a set of brightly colored orange street segments (pieced together to form an oblong, circular race track), using one (or two) “super hitter” (faux service stations through which cars passed on the tracks, including battery-powered spinning wheels( which would propel the cars along the tracks).

Through the years, Hot Wheels cars have been gathered mostly by children, but in the past 15 years[vague] there has been a growth in the amount of mature 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 an average of 41 cars. Most believe the collecting craze started with the Treasure Hunts in 1995. Mike Strauss has been called the father of Hot Wheels amassing; he’s organized two collectors’ events each year in some sort since 1986. The very first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, usually held each year at the fall. The conference occurred in a variety of locations around the nation until 2001, once the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was assembled together. Ever since then, the Conventions are held each year in southern California. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities outside of California through the spring. Strauss has also published the quarterly Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been among the very first to combine collectors all over the world. In addition, he writes on the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a publication listing history, automobile descriptions and values, which is used by almost every collector to learn more about the hobby and also their own collection. Strauss sold his collection from 2011 and retired from the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
