These 3 Jags sitting in Eastern Canada (Saskatchewan) have been there rotting away for ages . Two Mark 9s and a Mark 7. $3000 is what was the asking price. No takers probably at even half the price. What a shame and a waste. Anybody interested contact me and I'll put you in touch with the owner.

Stan Linguini? Sounds pretty close to the real name but incorrect. I must admit I had never heard or seen any of these "Stan Linguini" hand built Italian cars which were produced from the late 1940's to the early 1960's.
