New Website!

Welcome to our new / updated website.

Join the Prowlers

Our club is open to anyone with a pre-1949 Ford hot rod.  We do ask potential members to attend meetings and show us your car as we consider you as a member.  We are looking for a few good cars (members too). 


Our club is vintage!  We are an 'old school' hot rod club.  We are a social club. Our charter limits membership to 30 members. We currently have 16. If your heart is in hot rodding, you will love being a Prowler.


If you have a finished car, love hot rodding, and can attend two meetings each month - then contact us for an invitation to a club meeting.  We  meet on the first and third Thursdays at 11:30 AM at the Ranch House Restaurant at 11510 Woodside Ave., Santee CA., 92071
