Tow it to a shop. They will know what to do. Change oil. Take out old spark plugs. Squirt marvel oil on top of pistons. Get new battery. Siphon old gas out. Tires are probably bad. Brakes need all new parts and fluid changed. Master might be ok. Spin engine with the plugs for a little to work the marvel around. Maybe you will have a car. Maybe not. A bad thing to do to a car.
