    You could try Googling it, there may be some pictures (yes it is).
    Actually, they may have pictures of me. How am I going to justify an 08 Lexus RX400 h on my salary?

    Google is everywhere, you can run but you can't hide! They should have a human form of robots.txt for the streeview car.

    Perhaps we should team up and write an RFC for it.

    I also live in the middle of nowhere, but I suspect they will cover most small towns at some point - particularly as mine is an old market town and Roman settlement so has some historic importance

    I don't mind them coming here. But Minehead is roughly 10 years behind the real world... Companies don't like it here :P

    It's being knocked down to make way for 400+ new houses now. If you tell me where to look for the blue plaque with your name on it, I'll see if I can locate it.

    No way! They're knocking down the whole hospital? Does that mean everything is moving over to Rochdale then? I noticed that it's grown in the last few years!

    I drove past one of these cars the other day, didn't know what it was until it was mentioned on the TV last night.

    Apparently they intend to photograph every road in Britain. Quite a task... especially with fuel prices as they are.
