President's Message

It is July 2021. The SD Prowlers are doing well. We continued to meet throughout the Kung Flu pandemic outdoors in El Monte Park (Lakeside, CA.)

The venue seems to suit us well. We have entertained going back to the restaurant who always welcomed us to use their banquet room but have opted to stay in the park. Attesting to So Cal reputation for nice weather, we have not missed a meeting and at least half the members drive their hot rods.

Heading into 2022 and contemplating our 75th anniversary, we are being encouraged by our contemporaries to host another picnic.

We have reserved El Monte Park, Section 4 on June 4th, 2022.

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

Bob Wolin - Active Prowler Member

Member # 86

 

Bob has been building hot rods for many years.  He is also a master machinist with a very complete personal machine shop.  Bob can fix almost anything made of metal and the heavier the metal, the better.  He has help most of the Prowlers throughout the years.  What a guy!


Bob currently has two hot rods which he of course built.

 

Bob was voted a Life Member in 2017.

One is a 1931 Ford 5-window Coupe.  It is an all metal car with a stock 31 Ford body.  He purchased the body in July of 1976 (it was in a basket).  The car was completely finished and on the road by March of 1978.  It sports a Chevy 327 small block V-8, with a '57 Chevy 3-speed transmission with overdrive.  The rear end is from a 1964 T-bird.  The motor is capped with a triple-deuce set of Stromberg 97 carburetors running progressive linkage.

 

The other car is a 1929 Model-A roadster.  He purchased the car in July of 1963 with no engine or transmission.  It was on the road raising heck by November of the same year.  Now the car has over 100,000 miles on it (and 7 paint jobs).  There are numerous improvements he has made to the car and it still going strong.  The roadster sports a 327 Chevy V-8 (1964 vintage) with a Chevy 3-speed transmission with overdrive from a '57.  As with his other car, the engine has a triple deuce carburetor setup with progressive linkage.

 

Both of these cars are driven regularly today.  Bob attends the cruises in El Cajon and many others.  As Bob says ... you gotta drive them!
