Herald Sun - Motoring - - MOTORING -

Ja­panese car gi­ant Toy­ota has cel­e­brated its 80th birth­day. Aus­tralia’s favourite car brand for 14 years in a row, Toy­ota started in 1924 as a man­u­fac­turer of looms for the tex­tile in­dus­try. The first pro­duc­tion car was re­leased in 1936, though the au­to­mo­tive com­pany was not formed un­til Au­gust 1937. Now the world’s sec­ond big­gest au­to­mo­tive man­u­fac­turer, it has built about 250 mil­lion ve­hi­cles.
