When Google did a new Street View run, their timing was perfect. See my GTE on the driveway :D
And the Saab with the ScimFest stickers on the windscreen.

Last week I saw what I thought was a google car cruising around but it was an apple maps car, the cheeky sod pulled out right in front of me and I am wondering if the fingers will be visible when it goes on line.

I was sooo peed off with the raf doing low level manoeuvres over the fields with youngstock in, I wrote to them and put a complaint in, but everyone ignored it.

So when I was fixing my large barn roof, I painted on the flat part in huge letters... EFF OFF!

I was then suitably embarrassed when it appeared as clear as day on Google maps!

"Grosmont station" and, although I retired four years ago, my Scim is still in the staff car park.

From Google earth ariel view my old transit van (in RAC orange) appears outside our house here in Sheffield and again outside mum's in reading. Made me chuckle when I realised it :lol:
