President's Message

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!

Prowler Cars in the Movies

Prowler cars are required to be Fords.  Several of the Prowler's cars have been in movies.  One notable car is shown below.  This Prowler car is actually an old 20's Dodge roadster cab that Joe Pironello and Bob Smith dragged in from the desert.  It so closely resembled a Model T Ford nobody said anything and Joe made it into the cutting edge street roadster of it's time.  

 

It was featured in the movie "The Lively Set" in 1964 which featured James Darrin, Pamela Tiffin, Doug McClure and Joanie Sommers.  

 

So Click here and see the movie posters and photos and take ride back in time in time when things were simpler, and cars were 'hotter', riding in the restored roadster as it buzzes through the neighborhood of it's new home.

 

Then enjoy another nice pictorial of it's movie history and the San Diego Prowlers!  Click here
