I'm glad it's all gone...

What are those 2 devices I've circled on the left? ?Dual Coils for ignition? I don't have those... Thanks!
Yes, engine is twin plug as evidenced by the dual ignition coils (which you've circled) and by the larger 12 point distributer cap also shown in the pic.

Again, Other than the alarm & radio (if need be), which are fairly simple to trace back, I wouldn't start ripping any of the other systems or wires out of there prior to driving the car and identifying what everything is connected to, or its function.
