About two weeks ago I drove through an intersection in my classic car, and saw a Google camera car stopped at the red light to my right. I thought,
"Cool, maybe I'll be on Google street view in my classic car." It was just a passing thought, and of course never really thought about it
So about a week ago, I am scoping a map on Google, for a trip I am planning. As I dragged the route around on the map, the thought came back to me.
I found the intersection from a few weeks earlier, and clicked on the yellow man icon to drag him to street view.
When the street view photo loaded, it was a picture of me! However, here is where it's a bit strange. It was me driving my regular car, not the car
I was driving when I passed the Google car.
I know this sounds like a simple explanation. But think about the odds. Same intersection, different car, happened to click on that exact spot with
street view. I didn't have to pan around to find me, the picture simply loaded on the first click.
