Unhappy 86' not starting

i have an 86' z-28 v8 carbureted, camaro. I went out this morning to start it for work but it wouldn't start, like the engine was getting no spark, we put starter fluid and tried to jump start. the battery seems to be working fine and i tried to full throttle it, the gas may not be reaching the carburetor?

Re: 86' not starting

Carberated 86? I thought they were all either TPI or throttle body injected. What about an ECM? Do you have a mechanical fuel pump mounted the the right side of the block near the front?
