I love your enthusiasm, man. Keep the posts comin....
Plenty of information about buying cars that have been sitting a long while. What happens is most of the liquid components can calcify, the rubber will dry, seals will rot, etc. Depends also on where the car was sitting. Barn/garage much better than outdoors in the rain.
One note, Diesels survive better than gas cars because diesel fuel has an oily element to it, that helps give it a bit better longevity and is less likely to destroy fuel systems the way gas will.
