Resources

In addition to our award winning publication, DeSoto Adventures, which is published six times a year, and Homepage DeSoto, the NDC provides many other services. These services include a club library, an annual convention, club store, parts identification service, a salvage yard directory, model year coordinators, local chapters and free classified ads.

Listed here are the contacts for the NDC's primary services. Members and non-members alike are invited to use these services, but our volunteers are under no obligation to assist non-members.

Help preserve the DeSoto. Join today!
