I agree with Molson209. While it’s fun to imagine they are pristine and just need fresh petrol, that’s highly unlikely. If moisture has gotten to them, they are toast. Even if dry they could be very messed up by animals/insects/tomb raiders ect. We’ll see.

Pretty much on the money. It will take an engineer, artist, and magician to restore these.
