In desert racing, there are those legendary Trophy Trucks we often refer to as “best ever”, those trucks include the Mark Posts Riveria Racing truck or the Jimmy Smith Ultra Wheels truck, and you could even count the Herbst Truggy Land Shark. But what about a true Class 1? What are those buggies that stand out and have deemed legendary status? That would have to be Josh Daniel’s Class 1 race buggy known as “Sheila.” The Racer Engineering Buggy – initially built in 2007 would set the standard for what a class 1 buggy is today. Its high horsepower V8 would send beautiful noises out of the eight into one exhaust as Josh Daniel would come screaming down the desert – leaving us thinking one thing: that is a badass car. What makes this buggy so special, and how did it help set the standard for all buggies today? Well, Sheila is back, and we were able to see for ourselves...

There have been so many more class 1/2/ Unlimited cars that won more races and were fixtures at the front of the race. Start way back- The class 1 funco of Smith and Feldcamp. The Commander Chenowth of Ivan Stewart. Then we get into the Raceco/Chenowth/ORE years. Jack Johnson in the Tubular Specialties class 1 Bunderson, Tom Koch's Raceco, Larry Ragland's Chaparral, Bob Gordon's Chenowths, Bob Richie's Raceco, Cam Theriot's Funco Warrior, then we move towards Ivan's Toyota class 1, Herbst's Land Shark, Ebbert's Jimco, etc... Shiela's a bitchen car, no doubt, but it isn't iconic yet.

The title of your article does not match the car in question. There is no doubt that this car is bad ass but definitely not iconic. It’s a modern day class 1. Judas Priest is iconic, not Justin Bieber. They both sing but legends have a story and have put their time in to being great. 🤘🏻

It’s posing a question that’s open to interpretation, that is the point. The contents of it make it clear that this is a car that set the standard of what a class one buggy is today.

Icons are widely known, this car is too new to be in the same League as others has mentioned.
