Our Annual Picnic

President's Message

 

Hello to our website visitors. The San Diego Prowlers are now well into our 71st year.  It is August and it's hot even in San Diego. This was our first Summer since the early '70s that we haven't staged our annual

"Picnic and Ol' Timers Reunion". It really feels good to relax a little and have time to drive our hot rods and maybe even work on them a little. 

As promised we are reinventing 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 !

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!!
