That would scare the heck out of me Shocked .....time to remove a camera Twisted Evil . Nothing to hide just don't like big brother having that kind of reach. Privacy is a good thing.

Warren!! I SEE YOU!! Pretty funny catching you and your van!! That google car must have done a funny austin powers 10 point turn on your street.

I looked for my carat at my GF's house & a few of the other usual suspects without success. I might have been offshore so van would be up at the institute. No love there, too much security.

I think this thread might bring out the tinfoil hat crowd...

I saw the google car come down the road - by the time it was finished turning around the entire family was on the steps waving... too bad they used the first photo.
I also saw the google car on Craigflower (while driving the caravan)... they used the photos from driving the other direction... my favorite local photo (so far) though is this one, google has to buy gas too:

I also saw the google car in Duncan while driving the westy home from a camping trip... they were off duty though had the cover over the camera.

My Gretel gets to live in the back yard behind a big gate, but that didn't deter the insidious eyes of Google.

They had to resort to a satellite capture of my baby!

Can you find the Westy?

Bonus points, can you find my neighbor's Sprinter?

When I first heard about our current Westy, I went on Google Streetview to see if it was worth going to go look at.

It is kind of cool taking advantage of new technology eh?

Saw that in the graveyard. Not that I was looking for the car washer or anything, but I never found her. Now it's like a game of where's Waldo, dammit.

BTW, can't believe Google didn't hit our street in metro Atlanta. Best we get is the satellite view. My yard looks a lot greener than my neighbors, but no van in the driveway. Musta been out cruising that day.
