Cars aren't made to sit for six months without preparing them for this. Gasoline thickens, batteries die, moisture corrodes electrical parts. You should have a mechanic see this car and correct the ill effects from the long storage. You might be fortunate and it's just a dead battery or a clogged fuel filter.
