Same thing here, my car has been sitting for a long time too. When I get ready to start it again, I am putting in fresh oil. Then I am going to unplug the coil and let it crank for a little bit getting the oil circulating in the engineand get the pressure up. Because if there is any engine damage to be done, I'm sure it is much less at the minimal RPM of the starter as opposed to a cold idle RPM. Only makes sense. Then after that, I am going to plug the coil back in and fire 'er up. Then...I'll let it warm up and then'll I'll "blow out the cobwebs"!

Now I am not saying that <this is the way> to do this, but that's what I was thinking.
