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!

San Diego Prowlers Permanent Display at the NHRA Museum

A great honor was bestowed on the Club recently.  The National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) invited the San Diego Prowlers to display our club history in their permanent museum in Pomona (east of Los Angeles, CA).  This is an honor the club is very greatful for, so we collected some of our thousands of vintage hot rod photos and headed north.

Andy Bekech, the clubs historian,  has just finished setting up a display for the Prowlers at the NHRA Museum in Pomona, CA. The display has everything from a couple of the first club jackets to the latest club knife designed and donated by Paul Bos. Here are a couple of shots of that display.  Once again the club would like to say thanks to Andy for helping put the San Diego Prowlers in the hot rod history books ! Great job Andy!

The book with the 1949 club minutes is on display.  It shows a line drawing, in the margin, the club plaque to be designed and cast.  That design is still the same we use today.
