Street View car passed me and the mother standing outside my house with my old MX5 about May/June last year. 

They've never updated it... 

This did finally get updated.

There's no way of looking up historic streetview images is there? My old Carlos Sainz GT4 was in the staff car park outside of the primary when I taught in Darzet for a few years.

There is!

Click top left ish to view historical imagery, providing there is some. Here is my Grandad back in 2016.

In spirit of this thread, I went looking on google maps to see if I could find myself, but I found this:

After a quick google search I found out that it has been featured here:

Zastava Yugo 45 Cabriolet H383OAR

Zastava Yugo 45 Cabriolet H383OAR

and here.

No longer on DVLA database, does anyone know what has happened to this?

its currently wearing a different registration mark hence why it wont show up

(I sadly cant tell you what its current mark as is, as the tool I use for doing that needs topping up with more credit and all my spare money is going towards driving lessons currently!)

Thanks for the response, It's nice to know that its currently alive and well rather than scrapped!

2 previous cars - ea02vhw (Ford ka in works car park)

and a Saab of some sort at my old house. I can’t remember when I owned it, the reg, or anything. Such is the curse of a serial car addict. Also in shot- 1964 S type jag which my neighbour bought off me

Cheers. Lost waaaay too long on this tonight. Unfortunately my idea of my GT4 in the school car park was actually a photo my fiancée took back in the day, and not one which ever featured on streetview!

Gs in happier times pre clutch demise. I liked it better when it had much more bits attached. Rena migraine in time honoured wheel against curb stance because she can’t be arsed to use the block of wood I provided after fitting the last and as it turned out just as broken spaceship handbrake mechanism. Fair enough really as there’s also the faff of finding the right cutlery to make the just as wacky key card start the bastard. 1.6 pez seems a good unit mind which is just as well as the bonnet is a laying on in the floor snake arm operation to open.

There's a nice shot of my old XM estate, not long after I bought it in 2011, taken in the car park of the place where I used to work.

Going back to 2009 you can just about see the back of my Peugeot 205 van in the garage of its original owner, along with the concrete gateposts that are the cause of at least some of its dents and scratches.

Unlikely that the Streetview car will ever go up our* track and capture anything on the driveway, but in 2009 they did catch Mrs SL and a much younger/smaller Master SL turning off in the Primera family car we had at the time:

*Not our track, never really have been entirely sure who owns it, and I won't be living up there in a few days.
