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!

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!
