Question about 1985 Nissan 300ZX
Do you have a pedal? In other words can you feel pressure when you push it? I think your clutch has rusted to the flywheel in 8 yrs this is common. Try this put it in third gear, then push the pedal to the floor and have 2 or 3 friends push the car back and fourth until the clutch frees up. This might work, or put it in third gear then push the pedal down have the car against a solid wall or tree then try starting it. If this all fails you need to take out the transmission.

Slave cylinder is located on the side of the transmission behind the main flywheel housing and points towards the engine. Follow the clutch pipe down from the master cylinder. The slave is about 12cm long by 4cm in diameter with a bleed nipple on the top. You may want to change the fluid after 8 years! What can happen if the car has not been moved is that the clutch disc becomes bonded to the flywheel by corrosion, exactly in the same way the brake pads can seize the rotors. Make sure the wheels are free to rotate. Lift a rear wheel clear of the ground and chock the front wheels, as you start the car the differential will transfer the power to the lifted wheel. With the foot hard on the clutch take the engine up to about 2000rpm, hold the accelerator at that speed and pull the hand brake on and off slowly. With luck the snatch of the handbrake biting make break loose the clutch plate. You will know when it breaks free as the engine will rev freely. When you do get it free, slip the clutch for a while to scrape clean the friction plate on the flywheel. Likewise when the car is moving ride the brakes to polish the rotors of corrosion.
