Vair Spotted on Google Earth Street View, Barstow CA

I was just seeing America on my laptop using Google maps and I was "driving" through the parking lot of the Western America Railroad Museum and spotted this nice LM vert. It appears to be a '66 or '67 based on the taillights and lack of side markers. Does this belong to anyone on here?

That's pretty neat, I do that sometimes when I'm planning to go somewhere to give me ideas or looking for landmarks so I can find something.

I use Google Earth all the time to look a terrain before we go gold prospecting.

I have yet to be able to get anything real time...pretty sure you have to pay a fee.

There is always a date of the last satellite photo pass down in the bottom right header.

Topozone.com is another good website for looking at topographical and forest service maps.

Street view is taken from cars with an array of cameras mounted on them. Google sends these cars all over the country periodically to keep their maps and views reasonably current.

Looks like it is time-stamped 2017 Google.

Found my old rampside on street view. The kids loved riding in the back seat! It’s amazing what’s on the net.
