That motor looks pretty good considering the car has been sitting for a while.

Absolutely, positively get the oil and oil filter changed before driving it that far. I would also highly recommend changing the 2 fuel filters - the primary is the little clear one (well, it probably ain't clear any more...) and the secondary is the spin-on that looks like many cars' oil filters.

If you need a full-fledged A/C refurbishment it could easily run $1000. But look at it this way - do that, and you've got a car that you can drive for years for well under $3,500. Pretty darn good.

As long as the motor has decent compression, hasn't been run low on oil, and the body isn't rusted out, these cars are pretty tough to kill. They can be brought back to decent shape for not very much money at all.
