best way to start a car after 10 years

This car has been sitting since 01 and I was told it ran fine before it was parked. What is the best procedure to go about before trying to start it? I figure change the fluids and I will installing a new battery. Is there anything else I should do? Maybe some seafoam in the tank?

Sweet thanks. Good luck. I'm actually starting on a 72 cutlass. It needs some tlc but looks promising.
