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!

San Diego Prowlers Hot Rod Club - Celebrate 60 Years of Hot Rodding
The San Diego Prowlers proved that even after 60 years of hot rodding, we can still throw a barn-burher of a car show. We also want to thank our sponsors who generously supplied items for our raffles and winning cars. Sponsors were:
Well as you can see, we were not the only ones who thought that a 60 year old hot rod club outing was a big deal, the 5 page spread in 'Street Rodder Magazine' says something about it. We want to thank everyone at Street Rodder for coming and spending a day with us at Bates Nut Farm. We love your magazine too!
Bruce Hamilton Donates Vintage Club Minutes
Special thanks goes to Inactive Prowler Bruce Hamilton, member #87. At our 60th Anniversary Picnic held in September 2007, Bruce presented to the club our club minutes from the years 1948 through 1951. Our living Charter Members have told us they believe minutes were not taken at meetings during our first year of 1947. Previously, we had in our possession club minutes dating back only to 1952. Included were minutes of the Russetta Timing Association meetings from 1948, (the Prowlers were members of the RTA back in the early days). It has been a real hoot reading the early minutes at our regular meetings after the previous meeting's minutes are read. Bruce is a true friend of the Prowlers and is interested in the continued success of the club. Oh, by the way, did I mention Bruce paid for the band at the picnic?
