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!

Ace Carnahan - Active Prowler Member

Member #19

Charter Prowler Member - 1947 to now

All around good guy!

 

Ace is one of those special people that you are glad you know and always want to be around.  Nobody is telling how old Ace is.  And he doesn't care how old he is ... as long as the hot rod runs, Ace is smiling.

 

Ace was voted a Life Member in 2017.

Here is Ace with his 1940 Ford Business Coupe.  It was taken at one of the Prowler's Christmas brunches held at the San Diego Yacht Club.  Ace and his highschool sweetheart Ella are 'good people' and the Prowlers are very proud that Ace still attends almost every one of our bi-monthly meetings.

 

And if Ace looks a little bit like Wild Bill Hickcock ... it is not a coincidence.  He has been know to shoot a few buffalo from time to time in Julian, usually on a Saturday afternoon with his buddy Wyatt Earp.

Here's Ace's '40 at our Ol' Timers Picnic at Simpson's Nursery in Jamul around 2012.
