We all know that car shows aren't just about the cars. It's about the lifestyle and the beautiful women. Import models may be plentiful, but most of us prefer quality over quantity. Aiko Hana is one of those refreshing beauties that naturally puts a smile on our face, so while we're fighting through the off season we figured we'd entertain our dedicated fans with interviews of Tuner Galleria competitors and models.
Fairly new to the scene, Aiko Hana's first event was Hot Import Nights Anaheim in 2009. But who do we have to thank for discovering this beauty? "Kim Loan found me online and sent me an email saying that I should come out to her club event, so I did. After meeting her in New York, I signed with her [Prestigious Models] and started working as a model," Hana told us. And the rest is history.
Having had the privilege of touring at several Tuner Galleria events this past year, Aiko shared with us her most memorable events. "I was in Detroit and Chicago for Tuner Galleria at Autorama, and we did a few new things like playing poker with people and singing karoake. It was definitely the most memorable events I've ever attended." And the memories didn't stop there, Hana shared with us a story where a little girl was rocking out like a real idol on a TV show during a karaoke contest.
So what are Aiko's plans for the future and what can we expect from her? Well, she would love to become an international model in the States and in Japan. Having grown up in Japan, she looks up to many Japanese models keeping a nice and classy style that we can all adore and respect. And in the immediate future, say this weekend? "I love driving, cooking, cleaning, organizing things, being active, playing sports... you might be able to catch me driving around in the city if you are lucky!"
And how about all those guys out there that only dream of having a chance with Aiko? Well one things for sure, don't do what one of her fans tried: "All the fans are respectful and nice, but there was one guy who was trying to buy me expensive things like cars and such in order to have a date with me. Of course it didn't work out." So what does work you've got to be wondering. Aiko's dream date is a nice walk along the beach while watching the sunset. She enjoys relaxing and just talking about little things - that's her ideal date. Take some notes!
But before we leave the beautiful Aiko, we had to ask what her favorite car is and why. "Audi A4 because that's my baby. I love my car," Aiko began to say. "But if I could get one or two more I would love to have a 370Z or a GT-R. I believe I don't really have to explain why right?" No you don't Aiko, no you don't.
So last but not least, Aiko wanted to thank all those close to her that has influenced her over the years as well as the opportunities and everyone for their support. Hopefully you now know more about her and make sure to head over to her profile page if you're a fan
