Sadly, I learned today that Len Hughes of Len Hughes Magneto passed away on Saturday, June 21. For those who don't already know Len was THE expert on Mallory and Vertex Mags. He opened his speed shop in Elmhurst IL in 1959 and began specializing in Magnetos in 1961. When Len passed, the racing and hot rod world lost a valuable resource of over 50 years of hands on experience and expertise in magnetos as well as an honest businessman and an all around nice guy who would generously share his vast racing knowledge with anyone. I think the lightning bolts in the night sky will flash just a bit brighter once Len gets GOD's Mags tuned properly.
