Anyone in here make a living or is takin spy shots a normal hobby for you, if so, then where do you see all the test cars driving around? Im guessing less populated areas but im not sure.

Oh, I've already seen a prototype or two... ;o)<p>Seriously, there's many information floating around the web concerning the "Where to catch the prototypes" topic. You could start at google or here: <A HREF="http://www.arjeplogtimes.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.arjeplogtimes.com</A>

Hi there,<p>I usually catch my prototypes in and around Sindelfingen, Germany. Mercedes' development center is located here and seeing a prototype is nothing unusual here. I see about 3-5 every day and stopped taking lots of pictures to be honest just because to me personally it sometimes isnt as exciting as for other people. If theres something super cool and worth to take a picture of I will of course try to snap it.

I feel with you, skoochy :o)<p>But seriously, I remember forum user ghpixx complaining about some people who where excited about the 568th picture of one and the same prototype.<p>Sometimes it can be really annoing seeing the same prototypes every day... at least I can imagine that ;o)

Oh I never saw this thread until today. I've done a good amount of spy work in the last year. Can't reveal some of my locations, but one is the metro detroit area....but I think everyone pretty much knows where those hot spots are.<p>-Chris

Well, when I was in Paris about a year ago, I saw and took some pictures of an A Class prototype <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/banana.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>The only other time I saw some prototypes was last May. I was on the highway when 2 Ford Escape Hybrids past us going about 80 MPH, both with Michigan manufacture plates, although the car had been unveiled a month before in New York... <p>Anyway, I would like to know when car makers are making photoshoots in San Francisco, becasue I've noticed that a lot of carmakers photograph their cars in San Francisco for brochures and what not. <BR><BR>
