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.

Ace Carnahan - Active Prowler Member
Charter Prowler Member - 1947 to now
All around good guy!
Ace is one of those special people that you are glad you know and always want to be around. Nobody is telling how old Ace is. And he doesn't care how old he is ... as long as the hot rod runs, Ace is smiling.
Ace was voted a Life Member in 2017.
Here is Ace with his 1940 Ford Business Coupe. It was taken at one of the Prowler's Christmas brunches held at the San Diego Yacht Club. Ace and his highschool sweetheart Ella are 'good people' and the Prowlers are very proud that Ace still attends almost every one of our bi-monthly meetings.
And if Ace looks a little bit like Wild Bill Hickcock ... it is not a coincidence. He has been know to shoot a few buffalo from time to time in Julian, usually on a Saturday afternoon with his buddy Wyatt Earp.
