      68' high? They show it next to a tall-trailer semi, which might be 14' at most.

      Yes, but like 99.999999999% of the human populace, I have this weakness known as sometimes missing something in an article. Care to point out what it was?

      These are the parts I saw:

      "The beast is 106 ft long, 68 ft high."
      and

      "There is a Big Bus - those photos would be hard to fake - it is 106 ft long and 68 ft high."
      I'm aware the thing is a movie prop. I'm also seeing where the magazine writer claims the dimensions are real. So what part am I missing?

      I remember watching "The Big Bus" at least 3 or 4 times on VHS. Oh the memories.
