Meet our staff!

Adam Chovanak
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.

Nate Givre

Like most folks who come though SODO, Nate has been immersed in car-culture from a young age and understands the intrinsic value of classic cars produced over the years. From 1950’s American Iron to 1960’s Datsun 510 through Nissan Silvia and Skyline GT-R. Nate bound to find common ground in a transaction and sweeten the deal with a wry sense of humor. Or to offer insight or perhaps a cautionary tale from the cars he’s known and fixed (and broken).
