Our Annual Picnic

President's Message

 

Hello to our website visitors and a big Thank You to everyone that attended the LAST Prowler Picnic and Ol' Timers Reunion on June 25, 2017. It was our 70th anniversary and a fitting finale to this annual event. The weather was perfect, well it was a little warm.

We had attendees from as far as Hawaii to the West and Detroit from the East. 

There were about 180 cars.  We started the morning with free coffee and donuts. The IDEAS provided fine music while Big Devereau served his tasty barbeque. 

All the t-shirts were gone early as are most of the 93 commemorative plaques cast this Spring at Monte Hale's Backyard (there's a piston in every plaque) Foundry!  We still owe a couple to folks so if you would like one let us know.

Our club will now reinvent 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 !

The San Diego Prowlers Hot Rod Club - Making History Today

Currently the Prowlers have 15 members who drive their cars often.  During the summer months you will likely find us at the El Cajon Cruise on Wednesday evenings and in Escondido on Friday evenings. On any Saturday or Sunday you will see us frequenting a car show or cruising together around the mountain roads in the back county of San Diego. Times are very good. See our news section for Prowlers making history today - some older members along with some newer members keeping the tradition alive and well.

Just to give you an idea of how the blood runs once you've been a Prowler here's a picture of 9 of our charter members at one of our "Ol' Timers" picnics. The cool thing about this picture is the fact that the member standing at the left in the back row is Dick Wilson the original # 1 member of the San Diego Prowlers wearing his original club jacket. Dick is presently in the process of building another hot rod.  Way to go Dick!
