President's Message

It is March 2022. The SD Prowlers are doing well. We are excited to see things open up in the hot rod world. We have cautiously ventured to the Grand Nationsl Roadster Show and most recently the Early Times Mid- Winter Run. I heard today that Escondido's Cruisn' Grand event has been permitted and will commence on April 1...Hooray!!

 

The Prowlers are preparing to host our 75th Anniversary Picnic on Saturday June 4 at El Monte Park. We will have a live band (The Ideas) playing favorite oldies. Big Dev will be there with his famous BBQ truck. We will have event t-shirts and free dash plaques for participant cars while they last.

This event will cost $3 per car (for the park)

 

As many businesses discovered adapting to pandemic restrictions there were new ways to do things. We had to give up meeting in our comfortable indoor restaurant and chose the outdoor setting at El Monte County Park in Lakeside, CA. Attesting to So Cal reputation for nice weather, we have not missed a meeting and at least half the members drive their hot rods. As of our meeting tomorrow March 3, 2022 we will have met 43 times outside with no rain. 

 

We will keep you posted here. Until then, Keep the Shiney Side Up!

I have been a Prowler for a couple of years now.  I really enjoy the meetings, the runs and the jokes.  As a paint and body guy, I enjoy seeing cars in the club that have superb workmanship.  Finishing up a hot rod is a work of art - not to be rushed.

This is my beautiful 1934 Ford Coupe.  I did all of the work on it and am very proud to drive it.  The car is jet black and if you know anything about paint and body work, you know that black is the most demanding color.  Any blemishes in either body work or paint will shout at you in a black car.

 

I am glad to say that my car is pretty near perfect.  Of course, I wouldn't have it any other way.
