Yeah, don't be surprised if she starts sulking, drinking and not talking to you anymore.

I'd try to get out at least once a week and drive it a bit, keep all the fluids flowing and parts lubricated.

I wouldn't worry about it, my 02 averages less than 5,000 miles a year. Been that way for a while, it stays in the garage.
