Spotted a Google Street View car in Perth

I’m such a geek.  The most exciting part of my lunch time trip today was passing a Google Street View car! 

Yep, they are in Perth, taking updated photos of all the streets in Perth and a friend also saw one a few weeks ago.  But today, the car was driving at 50-60km/h along Great Eastern Highway which leads me to think they weren’t taking photos (unless they were using a really fast shutter speed and their GPS is still accurate at that speed). 

Look out for a white Astra with a pole and equipment mounted on top.     Anyone else see one?
