you'll notice that they are close to the height of the men in the pictures.
As big as a car? Well, some may have been, but I'd expect the vast majority
of the orange or yellow "cubes" you saw in most of the web site pictures are
closer to 6'x6'x'6' (2m-2m-2m) in size. Most only had seats for 2 folks and
a few tools in the back. They were tiny.
Also, notice those are NOT standard 33" or 36" wheels. Compare their
diameter to the worker's shoes in the photos to give you some idea of now
tiny they are.
I'll see if I can't find some exact measurements in the back issues of
magazines. Alternately, there is a restored one here in town, I may get a
chance to measure up for you.

- Hello Group,
I just downloaded 2 floppy disks of speeder pics. There is apparently
a group of people who restore, modify, and race speeders. Reynard,
they have a picture of a crane and a "rail grinder" in addition to
all types of speeders. This link should get you to the site
PS. Reynard, if you want, I can send you some of the pics.
