1980 911 SC Reviving a car not run for 15 years


Vehicle Information: Model: 911 SC; Year: 1980; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 15000;

I have a 1980 911 SC that has not been run for the last 15 years. It has sat in a garage under a car cover for this period of time. I want to get the car running again and I am wondering if you can give some advice as to how to go about it. Obviously, the gas has gone bad and will need to be removed from the tank and fuel lines. What else would you recommend before starting the car for the first time? The car was running well 15 years ago, but was run infrequently at that time and produced blue smoke from the exhaust on start up. There were no mechanical problems with the car that I know of at the time it was last run.
