A Bit of History
Don Westhaver has been working on cars in Vallejo for over 35 years and was shop foreman for the Mercedes-Benz, Porsche dealer in Vallejo for 15 years. He was the recipient of the rare and coveted Star Technician award from the Mercedes-Benz factory. Don also has a great deal of Porsche factory training and has the Audi/VW Quality Control award as well. When that dealership closed, Don decided to go out on his own.

We moved to Vacaville 9 years ago and it began to make more sense to move our business to Vacaville. In January, 2008 we opened for business at our current location. We have been busy ever since with very little advertising and are very pleased that we made the move.


How We Feel About Business

The auto repair business doesn't have the  best reputation, so we go the extra mile to build trust. That includes taking extra time to really explain what your car needs and why. Our goal is to give professional, friendly, honest service without the stress and hassle of going to the dealer. We will never sell you something you don't need.

Knotty Hair Salon - A Bit of History

 

Prior to the stock market crash of 1929, business in Suisun was booming. Local historian Jerry Bowen cites a 1925 edition of the River News, which noted that Suisun City's prosperity at the time was evident by the success of its banks. Specifically, the Bank of Suisun, which in 1925 had more than 10 times its original capital stock of $100,000 in its vault.

Founded by R.D. Robbins on February 7, 1876, the Bank of Suisun was the town's first bank and Robbins oversaw its growth as president until his death in 1919. The bank's first location was 607 Main Street.

By 1927, the bank was ready for a new home. It found it, a few doors down on the corner of Main and Sacramento Streets. According to The Heritage Collection, a historical book on Fairfield-Suisun sites and structures, the building was built on the site of the Rummelsburg Dry Goods Store. Typifying the Mediterranean style of the 1920s and 1930s, it was designed with high-arched windows, a low-pitched tile roof, stucco surface walls, and a rectangular floor plan.

Today, some 85 years later, these same architectural features can still be found at 601 Main Street. Paint may have given the exterior a brand new look, but the basic design of the historic 1927 building remains perfectly preserved as Old Town glamour. Fittingly so, since these days Knotty Hair Salon is what buzzes with commerce there.

New owners Justin and Emily Giangrasso set up shop at the corner of Main and Sacramento in 2009, converting the building into a modern beauty salon with vintage touches. Customers can take a step back in time with a visit. The lather room, for example, is built inside the Bank of Suisun's old vault - complete with the original bank doors.

Read more in the Downtown Suisun City Walking Tour Guide.

Knotty Hair Salon is located in historical Suisun City. They are directly across from the beautiful waterfront. In 1927, this building was home to the Bank of Suisun. In 2009, Justin and Emily Giangrasso (owners) transformed this charming old building into a lovely salon with a friendly atmosphere.

Clients are now able to enjoy a relaxing shampoo in the chandelier adorned "Lather Room." At one time this room was the vault of the old bank. Still standing are the vault doors with all of their character and interest. Knotty Hair Salon has experienced stylists who cater to all. They offer a variety of services and specialize in many different areas. We highly recommend scheduling your appointment in advance, but walk-ins are always welcome!

HELP! - Mission Solano Food Supply is Dangerously Low

Our commitment is to provide food and care for the homeless and hungry on Solano County.  At this moment Mission Solano NEEDS your help to accomplish this goal.  During the summer months we hit the "Summer Slump"  as much of our funding and donations tend to get fewer and further in between.  However, those that we serve do not stop needing our services.  Our hard working volunteers and staff continue to serve and care for the most vulnerable in our county in spite of the "slump".

This summer is particularly challenging and we are asking our great supporters to consider helping supply $50 in canned goods this July.  When your family goes shopping this month would you prayerfully consider purchasing a little more and bringing a bag of canned goods to the Mission Solano Community Outreach Center (740 Travis Blvd)?  

Maybe you can provide a bit more.   Would you consider donating funds at MissionSolano.org?

Or is this the year you, your church, your business or even you family decides to supply a meal for the nearly 60 hungry homeless that fill our building every night?  Contact Nick Fisher at nick@missionsolano.org for more information on hosting a meal at our Community Outreach Center. 

Thank You

Slow and Steady—and Generous—Wins the Race


In his talk with Darren Hardy, marketing expert Seth Godin offers these words of wisdom for finding success in today's marketplace: Be generous and grow slowly.

Generosity encourages trust in a business, "and if you figure out how to be trusted by a group of people, then you have done something really difficult," Godin says.

He also says to ignore the illusion of overnight success, adding that companies that seemed to immediately rise to the top actually took another route to get there.

NFL Player Gets First-Hand Look at Mission Solano’s Work

FAIRFIELD — Edward Campbell was apologetic when James-Michael Johnson stepped into Campbell’s bedroom at the Mission Solano Bridge to Life Center.

“Don’t mind the (Pittsburgh) Steelers stuff,” Campbell said. “I’m a Steelers fan.”

Johnson, a 2007 Rodriguez High School graduate and linebacker for the Kansas City Chiefs, graciously accepted Campbell’s confession.

“I’m really a football fan,” Campbell went on to explain.

“I am, too,” Johnson assured him.

Johnson autographed the T-shirt Campbell was wearing. But Campbell wasn’t changing his NFL loyalty. A Steelers fan he would remain, he said.

Ron Marlette, executive director of Mission Solano, and Raymond Courtemanche, operations director, escorted Johnson and his father around the facility Monday morning. Marlette and the younger Johnson would pair up later in a golf tournament benefitting Mission Solano.

Last Thanksgiving,  a fair amount of poultry was pilfered from Mission Solano. When the younger Johnson heard about the missing birds, he took to Twitter with a pledge to help replace them.

His Twitter followers followed suit and donations began pouring in from across the country, Marlette said. The purloined poultry was replaced.

“We got double the number of turkeys,” Marlette said.

Johnson said he couldn’t let the opportunity to help pass by. Thanksgiving is his favorite holiday and he knew he would be gathered, with plenty of food and family, in Kansas City to celebrate the day.

He was pleased so many people stepped forward to help, Johnson said. The impact of his Tweet didn’t hit home until he saw it on the news in Kansas City, he added.

On Monday, Johnson got to see firsthand the work Mission Solano does. He was impressed and particularly touched by staff member Linda Wells, who willingly shared her story.

“I was an addict for 30 years,” Wells told Johnson. “I was in prison for 12 years. When I got out, the first night I slept in a car because I didn’t have anyplace to go.”

Someone told her about Mission Solano. That was three years ago.

Wells has reunited with her family and should be off parole in the next month.

“She went through a lot,” Johnson said. “It’s good to see her come back from 12 years in prison.”

Johnson got the biggest welcome in the veteran’s building, where he was asked for autographs and shook hands.

Marlette could barely finish Johnson’s name when the men began to crowd around Johnson and pose for pictures with him.

“These guys were waiting for him,” Marlette said. “When I dropped his name, everything kind of dropped after that.”

He met a 2-month-old baby in the women and children’s building. Johnson also got to visit a family unit and the kitchen.

Johnson offered praise for the work being done at Mission Solano.

“It’s a good foundation here for people to turn their lives around,” he said.

“We’ve worked hard to get it where it’s at,” Courtemanche told him.

A young boy staying at the center followed Johnson most of the tour. The two threw a few passes to each other, using the football Johnson had autographed.

The professional football player ended his Mission Solano visit by autographing almost 20 color photos for the youths who use the organizations services.
