    If you look into this and in my worldly discussions with friends that I have spoken with over seas ... this was a plan ... Australia is moving away from Blue Collar to White Collar so they have been slowly destabilizing the industry ...

    I think this was the progressive plan were they were talking about a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders.

    Yes, but they are a recent arrival. GM, Ford and Chrysler date back to the late 40's and early 50's.

    Is 1963 recent? That's when they started producing Toyotas in Australia. They were importing Land Cruisers to Australia as far back as 1958.
