It is March 2022. The SD Prowlers are doing well. We are excited to see things open up in the hot rod world. We have cautiously ventured to the Grand Nationsl Roadster Show and most recently the Early Times Mid- Winter Run. I heard today that Escondido's Cruisn' Grand event has been permitted and will commence on April 1...Hooray!!
The Prowlers are preparing to host our 75th Anniversary Picnic on Saturday June 4 at El Monte Park. We will have a live band (The Ideas) playing favorite oldies. Big Dev will be there with his famous BBQ truck. We will have event t-shirts and free dash plaques for participant cars while they last.
This event will cost $3 per car (for the park)
As many businesses discovered adapting to pandemic restrictions there were new ways to do things. We had to give up meeting in our comfortable indoor restaurant and chose the outdoor setting at El Monte County Park in Lakeside, CA. Attesting to So Cal reputation for nice weather, we have not missed a meeting and at least half the members drive their hot rods. As of our meeting tomorrow March 3, 2022 we will have met 43 times outside with no rain.
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!!
