Racing track set

Along with the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track record (sold separately). Although it would be upgraded during time, the initial trail consisted of a string of brightly colored orange road sections (pieced together to make an oblong( circular race track), with one (or occasionally two) “super hitter” (artificial service stations by which cars passed on the tracks, including battery-powered spinning wheels( which could propel the cars across the tracks).

Through the years, Hot Wheels cars have been collected mostly by children, but at the last 15 years[vague] there’s been an increase in the amount of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million children grew up playing with the toys, the average collector has over 1,550 cars, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have an average of 41 automobiles. Most consider the collecting trend started with the Treasure Hunts in 1995. Mike Strauss has been known as the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he has organized two collectors’ occasions each year in some form since 1986. The first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, usually held every year in the fall. The convention occurred in a variety of locations around the nation until 2001, when the very first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was assembled together. Since that time, the Conventions are held each year in southern California. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities out of California during the spring. Strauss has also published the quarterly Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been among the first to combine collectors all around the world. He also writes on the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a book listing history, automobile descriptions and worth, which can be used by nearly every collector to learn more about the hobby and also their collection. Strauss sold his set in 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
