Remove the distributor cap and look for corrosion. Was the car stored outside? Was the gas tank full when it was parked? If not you may have water condensation in the gas tank and fuel lines. Put some Drygas in the tank. Squirt a small amount of starting fluid down the carburetor or throttle body, if fuel injected. It should run a few seconds on the starting fluid. If so it's a fuel problem. If not, it's a no spark problem. Lastly, look for critter damage. Especially if it was stored outside. Critters like to chew wires and build homes in the air cleaner box.
