where has it been sitting? in a garage? out in the elements?

i would suggest doing overall maintenance as you've figured plugs wires oil and filters and it wouldn't hurt to check tire pressure but one thing for sure the fuel in the tank is probably not the greatest so i would suggest running it empty before putting any new fuel in the tank

and run a little fuel system cleaner through it and as long as the car is in good shape you should be fine

if the gas in the tank has been sitting as long as the car, i would not run the car... i would drain the gas in the tank and put new gas in
