Who are the Authors of The Squealing Tire?

If the Authors of TheSquealingTire.Com were a machine what would it look like?

Don McNeilly – “It would look a more complete modern Baja buggy.  It would have long travel suspension and could rip through some nasty desert woops.  The motor would be tuned to purr at idle and scream at top speed.”

Matt Johnson – “First, it would have the power of a Clydesdale horse, then the styling of a Fox Body Mustang (my favorite) and it would be amphibious so we could go, technically, anywhere we want to go.”

Travis Comfort – “If we were a machine we’d look something like a giant lifted R2D2 with 4 seats and a handle bar for a steering wheel.  (-Wait, delete that.  We wouldn’t be that fat or top heavy…  Write this… ) “If we were a machine we’d look something like a Formula Off Road Icelandic Jeep turned overland.  It would have sophisticated electronics, a lot of power, a bullet proof suspension and drive-train and the ability explore the most remote places.”
