Not a Tacoma but a GTA

Ok,
I am sorry to ask this question here but I know there are alot of smart people here that know more about other cars then just Toyota.

Here is my situation, I ended up with a 1988 GTA with 65k miles on it. It basically has been sitting in a garage for the last 10 years. (actually it always has been in a garage) So it has not been driven for the last 10.

Anyway, is there anything I should do besides drain and replace fuel, oil change?
Should I add any additives to the engine, gas tank?

Any tips on getting it back in shape would be great.

Btw, it has always been maintained and cared for.

Thanks...

sorry if this is the wrong place to post.

I would pull the tank and wash it with a tank cleaner. Some tranny oil down the cylinders will help too. I would also not let it fire until you build up some oil pressure.

You scored. I love the '88-'89 GTA TAs. With that mileage it's a great find. I am definitely JELLY. Was it started on a semi consistent basis? If so I wouldn't be too worried. I would definitely change all of the fluids and run fuel treatment. What whipper said will cover all of the bases if it definitely hasn't been ran in 10 years.

Also, pics would be nice.
