President's Message

It is July 2021. The SD Prowlers are doing well. We continued to meet throughout the Kung Flu pandemic outdoors in El Monte Park (Lakeside, CA.)

The venue seems to suit us well. We have entertained going back to the restaurant who always welcomed us to use their banquet room but have opted to stay in the park. Attesting to So Cal reputation for nice weather, we have not missed a meeting and at least half the members drive their hot rods.

Heading into 2022 and contemplating our 75th anniversary, we are being encouraged by our contemporaries to host another picnic.

We have reserved El Monte Park, Section 4 on June 4th, 2022.

We will keep you posted here. Until then, Keep the Shiney Side Up!

The San Diego Prowlers making Hot Rod history - The 1980's

The 1980's were boom years for most everything in California.  Hot Rodding was no exception and the Prowlers were running strong.  Here are some of the members and the activities we had during this rocking decade.

Bob Deburn (member #136) had a very smooth riding 1932 Ford sedan delivery.  Bob enjoyed working on it and kept it in superb condition.  He was a frequent face at our events throughout most of the decade.


Heres another shot of Bob's delivery at a car show.

Here's past president Dick Fitzek's  #137 '32 3 window coupe.

his is another one of Dicks Hot Rods. It's a beautiful '32 . This rod was used for measurements for the Plymouth Prowler mock-up.  For more info concerning this you can refer to the story of " How the Prowler got it's name".

Here is another shot of Bob McCoy's rocket.  This "T" turned in a 205 mph at Bonneville in 1980.




Great shot of our Charter Members at the 40th Annual Picnic in 1987 at Deer Park.




Hotline News put out a great article on the Prowlers 40th Anniversary celebration that was held at Deer Park in Escondido. At this celebration there were about 200 cars.  As always we had a great time.
