The roaring 20s are just around the corner. Look forward to more traditional hot rod fun!

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.
