When cars sit idle for a long time, seals that are normally supple tend to dry out and when operated again things sometimes dint work as they should. Carbys are a prime example of this, Accelerator pumps fail, power valves gum up and generally the carburetter wont work as it should. You should get the carby chemically cleaned to remove any corrosion that has developed, and re built with new valves, seals, etc. As for the Cat, if it was that hot there is a fair chance that it has collapsed internally and will need replacing, make sure all the exhaust gaskets are sealing. Do a full tune and service. But watch out for oil leaks that may develop as you start to drive the car.
