Just thought of a wee fun thing.

Can you locate your car on Google Earth or even better can you see it on Street View?

Just to start the ball rolling-

I don't think Google has been passed my house for a few years, my Grandad's old Focus is outside:

My old Peugeot 306 can be seen parked at work, you can see cleaning it at my sisters and you can see my Focus parked outside at home.

In my defence it was a few years ago and we really needed a 6/7 seater and it was the only thing around at a price we could afford at the time........

It shouldn't show number plates, faces or house numbers.

You can report it to have it fuzzed out.

Sadly they came when I was at work, at the time I was parked up either behind a pub or in the office.

Never found any of my cars yet on the road or parked up :-(

My Dads old car was visible, as was the number plate - not that we really cared...it had been scrapped 18 months before the pictures appeared on streetview lol


It's the blue Citroën Xantia

EDIT: Just had another look, and it appears that Google updated the images of my area...found the courtesy car I had when I bumped the Focus (2 weeks after I got it)
But I can't seem to add the pic to this post
