Tarpinian’s Car Now Google Maps Star

car on Google MapNot too long ago we were celebrating Bill Higgins’ success photobombing Google Maps.

Now John King Tarpinian has discovered he unintentionally accomplished a similar feat. When Google Maps drove by Mystery & Imagination Bookstore in Glendale, John’s little white Volvo was parked in front.

Here’s a side view, and here’s a view looking over his car, straight into the store.

Not that I doubt John knows his own car, however, we were able to magnify the first view well enough to deduce it was his plate. The second view provides a much better look at the car, but as expected, Google blurred John’s personalized plate (as well as the faces of pedestrians).
