  • After 44 years of practicing dentistry, Dr. Tom Bowdler has many ways to enjoy his retirement; some are found in this photo.  In the far background is the Sports Aviation Center, which he helped to plan and build at Ledgedale Airport. In the near background is his 1967 Cessna 150.  He is leaning against his “pre-retirement present” to himself:  a custom-made 1923 Ford hot rod roadster with a Chevrolet V-8 Engine, GM automatic transmission and Ford Mustang radiator. “I told everyone that I would get a car that was fast, loud and stupid,” Tom said. “And, it is all of those things.”  Photo by Dianne Hickerson
