Some general information on getting your car started, did you drain the fuel tank? http://www.ehow.com/how_5784463_start-car-after-lengthy-storage.html

I have done all the regular stuff like change the sparkplugs , drain the tank, cheked the spark and all the electrict cabels and fuses! Can there be a electric start block or something???

If you have spark, then it is fuel, right? (let's assume it is getting air) Check carb, sensors, filter, etc.
