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!

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
