Our Annual Picnic

President's Message

 

Hello to our website visitors and a big Thank You to everyone that attended the LAST Prowler Picnic and Ol' Timers Reunion on June 25, 2017. It was our 70th anniversary and a fitting finale to this annual event. The weather was perfect, well it was a little warm.

We had attendees from as far as Hawaii to the West and Detroit from the East. 

There were about 180 cars.  We started the morning with free coffee and donuts. The IDEAS provided fine music while Big Devereau served his tasty barbeque. 

All the t-shirts were gone early as are most of the 93 commemorative plaques cast this Spring at Monte Hale's Backyard (there's a piston in every plaque) Foundry!  We still owe a couple to folks so if you would like one let us know.

Our club will now reinvent ourselves back into "doing whatever we want" for a change and leave the event planning to promoters who enjoy that stuff!

 

We are still the unchallenged "oldest hot rod club" continuously corrupting young men since 1947 so please dig in to our webpages and visit the hot rod club that has been there the whole time. See the men, cars and their hobby from post WWII to the present that was the laboratory of power and style that helped shape today’s automobile. 

 

Thanks to Steve Waldron for another year of great T Shirts.

Many thanks to our famous racing and hot rodding artist Bob McCoy for our amazing 2013 T shirt art !

Prowlers Make Headlines in 1998

Being on the cover of a car magazine and have several pages dedicated to the Prowlers is nothing new - but it was a very nice spread on the club.  And Oh, man isn't she sweet ... back to business, the March 1998 issue of American Rodder magazine featured a very nice write-up on the Prowlers 50th Annual Picnic.  It was held at the El Cajon Speedway in October of 1997.  (Unfortunately, in their infinite wisdone the County of San Diego demolished the Speedway some time after the picnic.  I sure hope we didn't have anything to do with that, ha ha.)

 

 

 

The article was quite large and the Prowlers were very pleased to have so much ink spent on the club.

 

 

As the pictures show, we really packed them in at the El Cajon Speedway.  Thanks again to the magazine for the great article.  We sure had a great time.
