My old Nightfire Red Coupe is still on Google street view in 2019.

I'm quite sure I saw the Google video van drive past my front end at the junction..the year was certainly 2009.:shock:

Usually if nothing else has changed to the buildings around the roads and the roads haven't changed, they re-use old images which i presume keeps costs down. As such your old Coupe may still be on there in 20 years time.

Well..this nightfire red example may well have gone to 'the great scrap yard in the sky'..but at least for now it seems the car lives on in Google virtual real worldly heaven :lol:

I've noticed an oddball on street view for my house. I live on a corner and it seems my road was updated on street view more recently than the crescent that loops off it.

This is the view if you look from the crescent on street view. I estimate this to be from 2009 or 10. I'd have to have a proper think.

This is the view from the road I live on, it changes as soon as you move the fraction from from crescent to road.

I think this is probably 4 years old.

More recent pic, though not as far away. Considering a new one with having the Corsa.
