Street View spycars need some TLC
And percussive maintenance, evidently
Our Street View spycar Google Maps Web 0.2 mashup has proved a spectacular success, with around 85 sightings to date submitted by sharp-eyed readers and 400,000 hits down there at the search monolith's cartographical tentacle...
The two latest submissions in particular caught our eye, demonstrating that even the galactic power of Google cannot keep a black Opel fleet running without human intervention. Here's one roving snoopmobile looking rather sorry for itself on the forecourt of an Edinburgh garage, courtesy of Ian Fraser:
In Bristol, meanwhile, we have an operative evidently taking matters into his own hands, and indulging in some light percussive maintenance of the spycar's sinister camcluster:
Nicely done, and nicely done too by Scott Griffiths for capturing the action. Keep those sightings coming. ®

the more ... shall we say, vibrant.... no, shitty is the word I'm after - parts of Worcester on Tuesday too. Unfortunately no pics, but if you see a silver car passing by the Chestnut, then that's us driving back to work at lunchtime.

Shropshire is quite nice around the edges :P
But yeah... when the average population density of the UK is nigh on 250 people per square kilometre (it's 31 in the US btw) and almost all of those people have the artistic sensibilities of a house brick it's hardly surprising.
Until recently there were only three schools of architecture in the UK, blocky, ugly and chruches (now we cah add gherkins... whoohoo).

You are not one of that female fashion dullard duo that are never off the TV are you? if so, for goodness sake, get off the TV, I like to watch mentally stimulating stuff when I'm not at work, not you and your mate banging on about what you think about clothes.
back to the story, perhaps they have been the target of the local yoof, welcome to the UK!
Can I appeal to these scumbags, if they must dsmage a vehicle to target these instead of those belonging to the rest of us tax paying, hard working and law abiding citizens.
After all, a new Opel to Google is pocket change.
