Already posted about the Orphan Car show Sun. at the train museum, but found two more closer to me. One is Sat. & one Sun. (same day as the Orphan Car Show) & the other is Sat., day before. Can't post pics, for some reason.

Sun., Sept. 26 SPONSORED BY Gateway NoPar club, ALL MAKES & MODELS WELCOME(even f.m. products) 5701 Hwy. N Cotllleville USED TO BE Columbia(?) Columbus(?)  Knights, NEW sign (I just drove by yesterday to be sure I remembered where it was) now says something different. Black electronic sign, something Banquet Center (Sorry y'all, my memory she ain't what she used to be. V. A. sent me to a shrink & she tested me (man, camera, tv, horse, whatever, plus some other stuff. I passed - barely! ONE point above passing! Anyway, that's why I don't have better info,

The OTHER one Sat. Is at Chick Lumber, O'Fallon. The problem with THAT is they just (this year(?) changed the service roads to all one way - IN O'FALLON. They change right there, so you have to actually take Hwy. 79 N 7 take the first exit, then take the first exit off that to the N svc. road (Outer Rd.?. Big place, SIMILAR TO teh other two (blue one & orange one). Their address is 2625 E. Terra Ln., O'Fallon. If you're on I-70, you can see it as you pass. That one is  acharity type thing. All ikt costs to get in & show is a nonperisgable food item.

The rear wiper wiring actually comes out of the hatch underneath the hinge.  The hinge gasket on the hatch side has a channel molded in for the wiring to go thru.  It comes out from under the hinge, then makes an "S" bend to allow flexing, then goes thru a grommet/hole in the body.   Eagles without a rear wiper sometimes went out with the "non-channeled" left hinge gasket also on the right side; in which case you'll have an issue running the wiring as it should be.   I might have a used correct gasket somewhere, but would probably take me a year to find it for a pic.   Take a look at the wiring pics I just took of mine - hope they're legible.

Well I grabbed the hatch and two of the armrests, as well as a couple of the manual sport mirrors from it. If I'd had the time I would have tried to get the wiring harness for the engine bay but it was such a mess under the hood that I couldn't even really see the bulkhead connector and it's a shame they destroyed the hood like they did because I would have loved to have grabbed that as well.

Glad you were able to grab those things.  I've seen too many Eagle hoods destroyed like they because it seems like they just put the jaws of life to them to get the hood open.  I grabbed the hood release cable and it was in perfect condition so they could have just used that and saved themselves some work!
Yeah I think the reason they do that is because they think no one will care and no one wants the part because no one could possibly still own one. And unfortunately I didn't grab everything I wanted to grab off the car, but what I did grab ironically costed me the exact amount I had in my wallet. ::)

If you go back I'd like the rear wiper arm. Are those Marchal lights?
vangremlin grabbed the wiper arm as for the lights they are Marcals but they are completely destroyed.
As for your question Taylor they had a sign on the front that said I believe no one under 18 is allowed in but it could have been no one under 16 either way she's too young to go in. And yes that is the right one.

The only holes at the top of mine are where the hatch hinges bolt on is that where yours comes out or is there another hole that I'm just not seeing.

What location/address?
Is this the right one?
Considering a cross country drive next month, and want a rear axle. Although I might have my 9year old girl with me so do they allow kids?
