Default Would my 1993 honda civic work ?

Iv had a 1993 civic sitting in my driveway for about 10 years & hasn't been started since. Would the car be driveable with new tires & a new battery ? Is it worth fixing the car ? & what other steps could I take to get the car to work without spending more money than its worth ? Thank you

sitting for ten years you would want to drain any gas out of it before starting it, check brake lines ,change engine oil, and change spark plugs. and have the steering links and suspenison parts greased

Check the mileage if is to high like near 200,000 then it might not be good working on it. but if is normal like 150000 then is worth a try. Don't crank it up until you have check houses, coolant level, oil level transmission level, you might want to change the fuel filter because cars that have been park for too long built up a lot of rust in the gas thank and that can clog you fuel injectors.
