Street View, Baby!

I just got through reading a post that Google doubled its Street View coverage. I will admit that I know roughly zero about the inner workings of Google but this gave me an idea that I can in no way use to my benefit.

What if the setup for equipping a car with the "Street View hardware" was sufficiently unobtrusive that you could easily mount it on your rental car? Would it be worth it for Google to partner with a rental car company and offer a $5 or $10 per day discount on your rental fee? Or better yet, what about partnering with U-Haul? Would the information be too redundant (everyone driving around in the same locations) or just plain useless (like empty stretches of interstate highways)?

Just a random thought.
