Yeah pull all the plugs out, then try turning the motor over... If then it turns over put the plugs back in and check for spark like Joe mentioned above.

"Wont Turn Over" is one of those Southern terms not to be taken literally.
It means it will not run or fire, not that the starter won't crank the engine.
Sometimes, when the car "wont turn over" it's time to "sale" the car. (just kidding)

Enrique, if it's getting fuel and not a hint of firing, then I would suspect the ignition circuit next, as others have suggested. You might also try a 3rd gen site for more specific info on the 1987 Camaro.
