SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:   

Doug Harder. Doug was born 1937 in Houston, Texas. He did not stay there long enough to get tall.

Doug has four kids and 10 grandkids. He was brought into the club by Bill Parchen.

He has brought over 50 members into the club. He was in the army.

His rivers were the Gulf of Mexico and the North Platte River from when he lived in Wyoming.


Program:   Mabe met Bill Bowser at Jack Marshall's Margarita brunch. Bill is the past President of the Colorado Repo Association.

Bill got into the repossession back in 1955 when his car got repo'd. He got more and more pissed as he was walking down to the impound lot and raised some hell when he got to the office. Well, the owner of the business liked his fire and hired him on the spot.

The boss also had a private investigation business. His first investigation involved getting in the trunk of a car and tracking where the wife of the client drove the car. When she gets to her rendezvous, he was to get out of the trunk, find a pay phone, call his boss and they will show up with the cameras. So he gets in the trunk. Its winter but he's warm and he is not dressed that heavily. Well that was ok until it started to cool down. It got down to 18 degrees that night. Well they drive out to the country where they enjoyed themselves in the back seat while he froze in the trunk for 7 hours. Problem with the country back in 1956 is that weren't any phones.

When they finally got back at 3:00AM in the morning he rubbed his legs until they came back to life. He finally was able to walk again and made it back to his car. Unfortunately the lock on his car was frozen. He was on his way up to her front door to fess up when his boss pulls up. He said he didn't drink coffee, but he drank a lot of coffee that night.

A couple weeks later the boss comes back to him with another trunk job. He takes it because it's up to $25 this time.

Well, the wife tries to open the trunk. He figures that the jig is up so he opens the trunk and says "Hi, you need to get in here?" She freaks and gets a policeman. He tells the policeman "I'm in here on the husband's authority and he owns half the car". The police haul him in and call his boss who finally got him off the hook.

Bill started his own company in 1960. The whole thing as to how it went with the law is that it had to be "peaceful". But it was still hazardous. He's been shot at several times and has taken a bullet in the foot during a fight with a man who came at him with a gun.

Bill wrote a book called "The Man Came and Took It Away".

In 1990 Bill started a repo'er association after another repo man had been shot and killed in his car. He started the association to help train people to be safe and how to avoid these sorts of tragedies. He was president of the association for 10 years.

After that he started doing towing for county charities. It was a lot nicer set of people. He retired from that in 2005. Now he makes desks out of old cars.
