President's Message

It is March 2022. The SD Prowlers are doing well. We are excited to see things open up in the hot rod world. We have cautiously ventured to the Grand Nationsl Roadster Show and most recently the Early Times Mid- Winter Run. I heard today that Escondido's Cruisn' Grand event has been permitted and will commence on April 1...Hooray!!


The Prowlers are preparing to host our 75th Anniversary Picnic on Saturday June 4 at El Monte Park. We will have a live band (The Ideas) playing favorite oldies. Big Dev will be there with his famous BBQ truck. We will have event t-shirts and free dash plaques for participant cars while they last.

This event will cost $3 per car (for the park)


As many businesses discovered adapting to pandemic restrictions there were new ways to do things. We had to give up meeting in our comfortable indoor restaurant and chose the outdoor setting at El Monte County Park in Lakeside, CA. Attesting to So Cal reputation for nice weather, we have not missed a meeting and at least half the members drive their hot rods. As of our meeting tomorrow March 3, 2022 we will have met 43 times outside with no rain. 


We will keep you posted here. Until then, Keep the Shiney Side Up!

Associate Members of the Prowlers

The Associate Member classification is for fellow members who have moved out of state but still want to remain a Prowler.  With this classification the member can still run the club plaque and wear his jacket and still consider himself an active Prowler.  We're all very proud to have these guys sticking with us.  This is a new idea that has just been started in the last year. At this point we have 4 members in this category and look forward to having more in the future.  At the present time the 6 members are: 

  • Dave Adams
  • Jerry Baltes, 
  • John LaBarre 
  • Johnny Vinta
  • Hank Williams
  • Jesse Ybarra

We will be presenting a bio on each of these members and the ones to follow as we get the information.  So be sure to check back and follow up on our new Associate Member presentation.
