Here at 3D Car Shows we keep our eyes on the Google Homepage to be the first to spot the latest Google Doodle. We just love the doodles and the interesting information, character, history and events that they usually announce. Usually the Google Doodles celebrate someone who we should know but sometimes don’t and are then shocked to learn that we use their inventions everyday. With a busy work schedule we do not get to build our general knowledge outside our scope of expertise as often as we wish to. However the Google Doodles offers us the opportunity to do so on a weekly basis!
