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 !

SPEEDWAY MOTORS sponsors of our 2012 and 2013 Annual Picnic.

Hank Williams - Prowler Associate Member

Hank Williams was member #141. He was active from 1990 to 2003.  Hank has owned a number of rods over the years and all were First Class cars.  This is a picture of his 1932 roadster when it was on display at the San Diego Auto Museum in Balboa Park.





Here you see his very clean and low, 1937 Ford coupe....




And here is one of his latest hot rods which he has owned since he moved to Arizona.



Hank recently traded his roadster for this 1932 Ford sedan.  This is his current hot rod.  Great to have you with us, Hank!
