http://www.gaiagi.com/3d-driving-simulator/ is a plugin with Google Earth that allows you to put in a driving trip and see 3D, map, and street view images as you go through the drive. I put a trip in Brazil and took a screen shot during the trip. You should try it out. You can also speed up the trip. The streetview doesn’t load as fast as the rest of the map but it is pretty cool.
