President's Message

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!

Les Hilgers - Active Prowler Member

Les joined the Prowlers in 2001.  If you open a magazine and see a faded green hiboy cruising around the San Diego back country...for sure it is Les!

This is Les' 1932 hiboy roadster and he DOES drive it



Here is Les on the road. Caught this in a magazine article.

This is an original hotrod from yesteryear that Les found. It was subject of a magazine centerfold article in 2017.

Les has an old Bonneville car...really old :- )

Here is Les' "daily driver" hot rod again. This car gets everywhere...just open a magazine with coverage of a north San Diego county road run and this car will likely be in it!

Here is one of Les' rides that we don't see much of.

I wonder if he is going to race that thing?
