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

Ray Gauthier - Active Prowler Member

Member # 121

I was born in San Diego in 1947, the youngest of 4 boys. I have spent most of my life here except for a brief time I lived in Bend Oregon. I was in the Prowlers in the mid seventies and driving a 1928 Ford Sport Coupe. I drove that car to four NSRA national’s, 2 in Tulsa, 1 in Memphis and one in Detroit.

I've been a  mechanic, a body man and painter. When I retired I was an insurance adjuster for Allstate Ins.

I live in El Cajon CA and my current club car is a 1929 Ford highboy roadster.
