How long was it stored and was gas stabilizer added before storage? Did it have a full tank? If not there will be water in the gas tank from condensation, and if stabilizer was not put in the gas is bad and won't run the car. Begin by draining all gas, put in a few gallons (you don't really need to fill 'er up) put some alcohol based water remover in with the new gas, charge battery on a slow charge for several hours.

The '88 'vette used Vats, there are 14 (yes, fourteen) different ways to re program it but just because it was in storage does not mean it lost the transponder code between key and Vats http://programautokeys.com/classified/DisplayAd.asp?id=1775

It does, it came across several places that ecplain how to reprogram that, but didn't 'go there" 'case I was no need. Put a new battery in the FOB to begin with..they don't last 25 years
