Question Getting it Running?

Ok, was able to pick up a cougar that has sat for around 4 years. What do I need to do to get it going again.

I figured the standard stuff like new plugs, oil change, tranmission fuild change, fuel filter, and some fresh gas, but anything else?

it's really hard to tell. With just those things it could start right up. Or the pistons could be stuck to the cylinder walls. You just never know. try spraying carb cleaner into the throttle body when you start it up for the first time.
