Where Googlecar stops:
North (Nordkapp, Norway)

https://maps.google.com/maps?q=Nordk...17.84,,0,17.32

And South (Cochrane, Chile)

https://maps.google.com/maps?q=Cochr...190.36,,0,5.32

===========

Also, the coldest city in the world Yakutsk, Siberia. Record low temperature -84/F (-64/C), with a population of 250,000.

https://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&l...,333.41,,0,7.5

There are a few odd out-placed anomalies in countries with no streetviews: Interior "corridorviews" of art museums in Baghdad Iraq, Doha Qatar and Dubai UAE. Also, a scattering of a few dozen historic and touristic sites in India.
