That car sure is colorful! Kind of hard to miss it. Last time I saw a pic of a Google street view car, it was a very nondescript silver Chevy Cobalt, but with that big @$$ contraption on the roof. I guess they've updated their look now.

Yeah, it is very colorful. I'm still waiting for them to update Google Maps. I think it would be kinda cool to drive around with that big camra on the roof, just drive on every road pretty much, all day! I would love that. Plus, I think Google would pay for your gas! :D I love driving, the only thing limiting me is the Astro is unreliable and gas is too expensive. I would like to just drive all the time, across the country.

GoogleMaps street view of my van pre-lift. Masked for painting with some primer already sprayed.

I'm in Phoenix. I meant monsoon, not Tsunami. We suffer monsoon winds and rain every summer, followed by Haboob sand/dust storms. That huge Joshua fell over completely one night. Luckily didn't hit either of our cars or anything else breakable. Knocked a bunch of bark scorpions out of the tree that had to suddenly relocate. Grackles took care of a lot of the scorp's but a few of them came in to my shop and the house.

No, I wasn't following him. The car was an unmarked slate grey 4 door Pontiac G5, not decked out like the one you photo'd. There was 3 or 4 of them driving around town for a few days. I saw him when I passed him driving to work.

They had the big cameras. Here is a shot of the cars on the highway. Looks like they are Cobalts, not G5's like I stated earlier. My memory is good, but not perfect.
