On Google Street View ?

Hey Everyone.

Any one know if they are or their car is on Google Street View ? I just found myself on Street View. I'm actually driving down the road. Well you can't tell from the image its me. But I know I was at that location when I went past the car with the enormous tripod and camera mounted on the roof of the car and the google decal on the side of it.

Does anyone else have an image of themselves ?

Wow good find! I figured it would be people with the car parked at work or their home, not actually driving down the street.

I am quite pleased that my house is not on it. In the UK one feels that the state is becoming more and more stalinistic by retaining data, DNA etc and this just does not feel right. There are cameras everywhere.

All seems very Orwellian and soon all of us will be wearing chips and will be monitored as little blips in some giant radar screen.

Bring back the old times I say, when life had privacy and respect.

My car is shown just above street level when you are looking down into my driveway. Apparently, I had the car out washing it.

Have you never, in the past, ever bought a newspaper / book / magazine / postcard containing a photograph of a city / town / village / street / park / beach, which actually has people (or even cars - with registration plates!) on it?

Shock horror outrage! Such things must be banned! "They" are spying on us! And when I say "They", of course I mean the secret alien force which our supposedly respectable public authorities have actually been bribed into working for all the time. Needless to say they always deny this if you ask them, but of course that's what they would say, isn't it?

Can I invite you to join us in our Paranoids' Society? Just send me all your details - full name, address, mother's maiden name, place of birth, her place of birth, bank account number, PIN number, car registration number, chassis number, car mileage, details of all servicing carried out since you acquired it, fully detailed route of every car journey you have ever made, photographs of the interior of every room in your house, a photograph of the contents of your 'fridge ...

How do you know that they're after you? Have you seen their secret files? How do you know that there are any secret files? How do you know things that I don't? What's going on? Why doesn't anyone tell us the real facts?

Ah, but how do I know that it's your 'fridge?

And how do I know that it's a real 'fridge, and not a dummy one with a false back, with the real 'fridge hidden behind it?

My query was a simple one... and very innocent. Just wanted to find out if others had their cars on Google Street view. This discussion has gone off the tracks and is completely off topic.

I remember passing a car with that on top a few years back. I will search that area to see if I am in the picture.

Cool idea for a thread!

I DID see a red SLK following the cab in the background on an episode of cash cab.

Er, and that's a problem?

How can we be sure that you're not an agent from them, and have been sent to try to snuff out a discussion which might lead to the Hidden Truth Behind All This being revealed?

I can distantly makeout my 328i BMW from the satellite view in my parking lot at work but I'm not so sure about the street view photo. That could be my SLK in the center of the image but the resolution isn't clear enough for me to tell.

My prior car, a 2004 E Class is clearly in the street view. The actual owner told it to me a few days ago
