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.

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...
