Default Honda Accord rehab

I have a 1992 Honda Accord that has been sitting in my driveway for
three years. What do I need to do to get this car in running shape? I
know battery, tires, and fix original problem. What about anything
else?
thanks
Rob

the engine cylinders have probably rusted.
probably the steering rack,too.
Lots of moving parts have probably rusted.
the fuel lines are probably gummed up with old gas.

or you can fire it up and discover that it works just fine.

crank the motor by hand and change the oil before starting. drain and
change the old gasoline too.

I agree. I have started many Hondas that have sat for a while. Funny
thing is that the fuel system is so well isolated, the gas might just be
OK barely. Not a bad idea to drain it though.

87 prelude sat in my garage for over 1.5years. Charged the battery up, and
it fired up within 20 seconds. Carbs were probably gummed up, plus the old
gas....

oh yeah, and one of the wheels was rusted and locked, but it came loose after
a couple minutes of back and forth.
