Now you probably might wonder where the name "Little Snokyo" may have come from. When there is heavy snowfall in Tokyo, it can be seen blanketed in a pure winter white and it that's when Tokyo, Japan was often nicknamed "Snokyo" in the winter. John Salazar, driver and owner of the said van, came with the idea to playoff of the JDM culture and called his business just that. Little Snokyo.

THE ARTWORK ON THE EXTERIOR, IT'S NOT A WRAP BUT A PAINT JOB!

Making car show goers smile one snow cone at a time.

JOHN ALSO HAS A PASSION AND HISTORY OF WORKING WITH CUSTOM CARS AS WELL.

John's 92' Hijet has quite a few custom pieces that make this Daihatsu very distinct when he pulls up to shows.

The exterior sports not only a wild paint job but the van was fitted with 15x8 +14 offset AME/Fatlace FZERO1 wheels housed under wide fender flares fitted to the body and the wheels are wrapped in 195/50R15 Federal tires.

The motor he used was a Honda Goldwing GL1800 paired with a Harley exhaust and linked up to a six-speed and a Ford 8.8 rear differential with the interior sporting an anti-roll bar and retrimmed Recaro seats done by E3 Customs in Ft. Lauderdale. Truly one unique ride for one dynamic driver who "Creates" his own luck.
