    I must say I was amazed.
    Its been sitting in that barn since 2009 (its a friends barn, about an hour from where I live)
    It needed a new starter (the starter was already "balky" when I put it into storage, so Im not surprised that the starter locked up).
    The Battery, of course, was wasted.
    I put in a new starter, and pulled the coil wire - cranked it over a dozen times.
    Plugged the coil bang up and BANG - started right up.

    Loads of mouse poop in the engine area above the wheel wells.
    Stinky in the car, but the bait traps were NOT nibbled on, and the bounce sheets, / febreeze, seemed to keep the critters OUT of the interior.
    Unlike the last time I pulled it out of storage :(
