      If it were my car, I would change the oil (preferably before storage). Take
      off the valve cover, pour some oil over everything you see, replace v.
      cover. Have a very good inspection for disconnected wires etc.
      Ensure that you have clean, fresh fuel or at least pour fuel stabilizer in
      the tank. I like to remove the coil wire and turn the engine over a few
      times before starting for the first time. Cold metal on metal clanging
      around under the hood freaks me out!
      Might sound excessive to some, just my opinion. Haven't lost an engine yet
      and I do this every spring.
