Adam Chovanak
(Owner)
Long-time PNW car and motorcycle enthusiast. After graduating from model airplanes to homemade go-kart (modified riding lawn-mower) – Adam purchased a basket-case 1969 NSU Prinz as a 13 year old and proceeded to rebuild the motor and resold to prolific Spokane collector. The miliary bases provided exposure to 1960’s and 1970’s JDM vehicles and Adam imported some rare vehicles from Canada while at the UW followed by Gwagens and Landcruisers from Europe.
With the late 1980’s Japanese vehicles available for import into the USA in ~2013 – Adam started to commercial importation. SODO Moto brings 30+ years of hands-on automobile passion with an eye for the eclectic to our humble home just south of downtown Seattle.
