President's Message

It is the end of 2019. The SD Prowlers are entering our 73rd year driving souped up old Fords and enjoying every minute of life.

The Prowlers hot rod club have chosen a new president so it is time to begin another chapter in this book.

The roaring 20s are just around the corner. Look forward to more traditional hot rod fun!

 

ps: Hey we have a very nice 2020 calendar available.  There are three pages dedicated to our history and the rest are pictures of our contemporary "driven daily" hot rods...all on nice paper and excellent photography of course. The cost is $10 . If we have to take it to the Post Office add $5. If interested email jimrinob@cox.net.

Jeff Walls - Active Prowler Member

Hi, my name is Jeff walls and I am proud to be the newest member of the "Prowlers", thanks to the invitation of Marty Simonides and the warm reception from all of the members.

 

From my early beginnings in Southeast San Diego, I poured over all the hot rod mags and hung around some of the older neighborhood kids with their hot rod Fords and Mercs. On my paper route was a high school kid always working on his red oxide primed 34 Cabriolet with no hood, decked out flathead, w/w's and dropped axle.  This vision imprinted on my mind.

 

During high school and Jr. college, I had the pleasure of owning and slowly improving upon a 39 Ford 2D, and a 46 Ford pick-up.  Career, Family and home ownership put a kabosh on the hot rod stuff.  

 

Fast forward to 2000 and my retirement.  I had the good fortune of consulting with and ultimately contracting with John Ray of Ray's Fabrication and Development on constructing a street rod from and original 34 cabriolet body and frame.  Despite writing checks that would equal a cord of firewood, I couldn't be more pleased with the results
