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!

NHRA Museum Club Display
The San Diego Prowlers were asked some years back, to loan some historical club items to be displayed at the Wally Parks NHRA Museum in Pomona, Ca. This was accomplished with the help of Greg Sharp curator, at the museum. We were very happy to oblige. With a large amount of Prowler club history we have in our archives, it would take a while. Among the chosen items were early club photos, from the late 1940's and club jacket #3. We sorted through 1000's of pictures, to find the very best to be displayed. One special article found, was the very first known club minutes (1948). In that books margin, was a small drawing of the design for a club plaque. At that time it was known as a "Bumper Plate". That design was adopted and still used today on all club cars! We have all the clubs minutes, up to the present day!
Enjoy and Hot Rods Forever!!
