drain and replace all fluids and oil, drain the gas tank and flush the lines then put 5 gallons of fresh gas in, new battery, plugs and points, and vacuum lines then fire it up!!! It's a Pontiac, if it was running when put away it should run now...once you get it going spray some carb cleaner in it then diagnose from there...
