Hi All,
I am new to the forum and the new owner of a 1988 GT MT. I believe the vehicle was last started around 2007 so I am in the process of getting it running again. The car is just about completely original and spent its entire life in the southern Californian desert so seems to be a good candidate for restoration. It is also kind of unique in that it is a factory no A/C, no power window or locks, no door stereo speakers and no rear defrost package. I have already found a ton of useful information on the forum and am excited to learn more. Currently working through some electrical issues with the fuel system.

See Jeremy help is here. I'd change all the fluids( fuel,oil,trans,coolant,ps,differential) I do this with every used car I ever got.This ensures you start with a clean slate.The hoses and belts should be next. You said it say for what? 13+ years. Full tune up is way over due. It's all gone be a fun journey,trust me.

Thanks guys! Will make sure to drain the gas tank and change out the fluids. I found some pretty helpful threads on starting up a vehicle that has been sitting for a while.

Welcome!
We do need pics though. It’s the small price to pay to get the help you need! Let’s see that ride!
