Back then our immigrants came from countries with predominately white Anglo populations and we didn't notice them because they looked like us.
Now they come from Asia, India, the Pacific Islands and we do notice them.
But, as a percentage of our population, our migrant intake now is pretty much the same now as it was then.

Old is good.

% of Aus population born overseas was a little over 20% and now it's closer to 30% so it's increased since then by about 10% - from ABS data..what is very different though is how culturally diverse our population now appears compared to then...and a lot of those people if we filmed now would have been born here and not migrants at all...just how things have changed but very noticeable...I work in a team we joking call the united nations - very diverse..unfor the new crowd despise old holdens..and other older Aus cars so makes me think who will buy them in future?

I noticed the Anglo origin thing to..
Did you see the White HJ? Monaro at the start of the clip which probably sets the scene to be around the 1976 or so mark...

I thought the same Al. My Dad was in the ARMY in the 1960โ€™s until late 1980โ€™s. He brought home quite a few different ARMY vehicles. Besides the obvious Series 2,2A and 3 Landrovers, their was VW Kombis and I remember XY utilities, but never a HQ

Reaper, who used to come here has his father's HR ex-army sedan. It's a bewdy, and no rust of course, being an HR.
Have a look on the first page of the sheds, I think it's there somewhere.
I'll have a dig later..

Yeah itโ€™s a real shame that the โ€œshedsโ€ went down
For what reason Iโ€™m not quite sure?
There was a lot of variety of cars and information about builds, what works and were bits and pieces are, paint and trim cods
I used to go through sheds after a days work out hear just to unwind and get my head and thoughts together and get back to reality
Oh well maybe some day ๐Ÿค”

I can be...I remember you being in the RAAF...when I lived in Canberra I'd see lots of air force officers sitting in the Defence library reading news papers all day ! Now before you get excited - many others did as well but those air force guys really knew how to not be busy...:-)

I actually think we are a better country for having the wide diversity of immigration we have, imagine if we didnt get all those wonderful foods from all those places.... My only gripe is when they come here and try to make it like where ever they came from, in the 60's and 70's the migrants intergrated, and as such were accepted and welcomed with arms wide open, nowadays they crerate such a hoo har that we resent them

I went to school with Italians, Greeks, Maltese, Egyptians, French, Lebanese and a Norwegian. And that was at Castle Hill. We all got along just fine.
I found an interesting chart from the ABS: https://www.abs.gov....@.nsf/previousproducts/3412.0main%20features32015-16https://www.abs.gov....@.nsf/previousproducts/3412.0main features32015-16
The number of people born overseas is now virtually the same as it was 125 years ago. It dropped a lot through the years of the White Australia policy, but it has recovered.
