Default Where to start, car not getting any fuel?

So i just bought an 87 gt from a guy that just had the motor rebuilt and could never get the car started, he states that he cannot get any fuel to the motor. Anyway i havnt actually gotten to take a look at the car yet, i pick it up on friday but was wondering where i should start with this beast. any ideas would be appreciated, thx

cheap and easy thing....CHANGE THE FUEL FILTER! always do that when purchasing a car, also, check to see if there is any power at the pump

Well I would first make sure the problem is its not getting any fuel before I'd replace anything.
