If I ever see either of those cars drive past me, I'm going to jump in the air. People will think I'm levitating.

Spotted the Google Streetview car twice today in Albany, so it is certainly getting around.

Creamished coloured Google Camera Astra spotted on Warton Road Huntingdale on Tuesday. Has the Thornlie and Midland areas been done yet?
