Our Annual Picnic
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.

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
