simonracer should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I suppose you could trace the lineage to about 30 years earlier then that, considering Australian Motor Industries were the ones who built the Toyotas for their first twenty years or so (and then got bought out and merged into Toyota Australia) and AMI started back in the twenties when they got the agency for Standard cars.

For a fun fact, AMI at one point simultatenously assembled Standards, Triumphs, Ramblers (so AMCs) and Toyotas. At other times they also built Mercedes-Benzes and Ferguson tractors, and had a deal to built Fiats which fell through.

This is true too. But they continue unabated in other industries while we have lost something of tremendous value.

Altona To Remain Open, Redeployed

It is actually great to see that closing this plant has really meant something to the management of Toyota.

End of an era

Yes, and they are slowly but surely killing those other industries too, not to mention putting themselves out of a job, but as always it'll be everyone else's fault.
