Barney Langner's Novo won an unusual distinction-it was shown on the 1980 Fall Gas-Up button of Branch 3, E.D.G.E.T. & A., Santa Cruz, California.

Barney is a director of Branch 3. He and his wife, Virginia, live in Haward, where he is purchasing manager for Hunt-Wesson Foods. He has 30 years with the firm.

Here's more, from the Branch 3 NEWS:

'He has many years association with his church, being especially active in the Men's Club and related youth activities. He is a life member of the California Parents and Teachers Association, spent 6 years with the U.S. Navy and is a member of the Pearl Harbor Survivors Association.

'The Langners have 5 children and 7 grandchildren, and between home and garden projects find a few moments to enjoy fishing.

'As for his Novo engine, a friend told him of one in the Livermore hills and the owner said he could have it. With a truck they rescued it from under a big oak tree and hauled it home. Several years later, he talked with Cliff Hardy, who told him of Dick Hamp, and soon Dick and 'Jorgie' Jorgensen arrived and got it running!
