Hey, who’s behind the dark glass in that GTI on Google Maps Streetview?
One day while on my lunch break, I was sitting in my car in the parking lot at work when I noticed a familiar-looking Chevy Cobalt drive by.
Realizing I likely wouldn’t have another chance, I sped off after it, finally catching up with it at the stoplight, in the first photo above. I alternated between leading and following the Cobalt for about 5 minutes, before I broke off the chase. The other good shot of me is at the intersection below:
And if you go backwards from the shot above, you’ll see me accelerate to catch up with the Streetview car, after making a U-turn when it ditched me at a stoplight. In the next shot “forward” or eastbound, I disappear, only to reappear back in my company’s parking lot.
This happened on September 17th and I’ve been obsessively checking back every couple weeks, waiting for Google to update their maps. Today, my dream became a reality.
