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!

Andy Bekech - Active Prowler Member
Ed and his son Bob were the originator of the "Dago" dropped front axle. The top of the car was 'chopped' in 1950 by Jaoquin Arnett of the famous 'Bean Bendits'. The car ran at the El Mirage dry lakes in the early 1950's. In one run it made 127.5 MPH, while running under the banner of the Russeta Timing Association (R.T.A.)
Andy is the perennial Curator of Hot Rod History and Prowler historian. He interviewed by publications for articles about our hobby and individual hot rod aficionados trying to locate an old car. The Prowlers would appreciate readers with stories about Prowlers or their old cars, pictures, etc. to contact us. See our home page for the contact information.
Someday there will be time to tell some stories about some of the other cars Andy has owned below...
