Our Annual Picnic

President's Message


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. 


Thanks to Steve Waldron for another year of great T Shirts.

Many thanks to our famous racing and hot rodding artist Bob McCoy for our amazing 2013 T shirt art !

I joined the Prowlers in 1971.  My original club car was the Model T- pickup.  In 2011, my wife and I bought a 1936 Ford Humpback Sedan and it is my second club car.  We semi-retired the roadster - life is good.




Marty has a great 1927 "T" Ford roadster pickup. This is Marty's second time around with the Prowlers and we're all glad to have him back. It's kinda one of those things where once a Prowler, always a Prowler.




Great shot of Marty's "T" roadster pickup. Marty built this all-steel roadster pick up in 1969 and it is still on the road looking great today.



Here is my 1936 Ford Humpback.  Its nice to have windows sometimes.
