Last year, my new husband died, leaving me his car. It is a 1982 Datsun 200-SX, 5-speed overdrive, power-assisted steering, power windows, sun roof, multi-warning system, vocalized 6-function warning system, and more. He loved his car and kept it in prime condition (the engine, not necessarily the paint job). It has only 88,000 miles.

This car is so foreign to me. I have not driven it for this year, but have kept the battery charged, etc.

Could someone please give me insight regarding what to look for now that I will drive it? Engine noises, what the idle should be, how much "rev" to give it when shifting, etc. Assume that I am an idiot and know nothing.

Would it have damaged the car by not driving it this past year?

Thank you for any assistance you can offer.
