Did you know that salt is a natural antidepressant? That special white stuff on the ground we call Bonneville just melts depression away, which explains why so many of us go back to the Salt Flats year after year, like Nick. Nick’s Lakester was built about 10 years ago. The Arias Hemi engine is neither a Chevy, Chrysler, or Ford, but one of Nick’s own design originally for off-shore boat racing. The car was built by California Chassis to Nick’s specifications. Nick’s 707 A/GL: the “A” is the engine class 440 to 500.99 ci, the “GL” designates Unblown Gas Lakester. According to Fred Blanchard, Nick’s long-time friend and sales manager, the car did set a record with Nick III driving at 270 mph. The car is now owned by John Fasro.
