If you have ever checked out google maps then you know that they also have what they call "Street view" where you get a view of the street just like you were standing there yourself. For an example if I were to go searching for Palm Beach, FL. here is a street view

Well how do you think they get all of those street views? Yep they drive around and take them. Now maybe you were one of the lucky ones (or unlucky) that happened to be outside when the google car came down your street but for most of us we were not. My sister in law caught them (I'll spare her and not post the pic) they snapped her picture taking out the trash in her Jammies.

Well lucky us OCAU in Austraila captured the Google car. They found it parked at a tire shop with its spare tire on. They posted the pictures so here are some of them

So if you should be outside when this car drives by remember to SMILE Big Grin

Wonder how often they get pulled over when the fuzz see that giant contraption on the roof? Laughing

They must use all kinds of different cars to do it. My next door neighbor has a picture window, and you can see the reflection of the google-mobile in it as it took the picture, and it's a little white car. They probably hire teen agers to do it and just clamp that thing to the roof, like they do with Dominos Pizza delivery boys.

When I google my address you can see the shadow of the google car in my yard - it looks like a alien spaceship.....
