Mike Zarnock is an American author and columnist, who writes collector guides and articles about Hot Wheels Toy Cars and Accessories and currently producer/editor and host of "Hot Wheels TV" on YouTube. Mike's knowledge and his massive Hot Wheels collection (approximately 30K vehicles) has earned him notoriety around the world. Whether it's because of the 14 books, numerous chapters in other books and hundreds of magazine articles that he's written about Hot Wheels Toy Cars and Accessories or just the sheer magnitude and diversity of his twice held Guinness World Record Hot Wheels Collection, he has earned the most distinguished label: "One of the world's leading Hot Wheels authorities."
