DeSoto's Salon is a fixture on Route 66 in Ash Fork, the 1960 DeSoto
on the roof might be part of the reason. The former 1950 Texaco Gas
Station and Garage was converted to DeSoto's in 2001 by Joe and Edie
DeSoto, so no, it's not named after the car.
About Us We started traveling Historic U.S. Route 66 as a destination in 2009. It's like a 2,400 mile long drive back in time from Chicago to Santa Monica! more
You Know: Many parts of the old 4 lane Route 66 were reverted to a 2 lane
road after 66 was realigned to the interstate. In many places the abandoned
lanes are still there.
