Charge the battery up completely with a charger. That should give you enough of a charge on the battery that it will run for an hour or so if the alternator really is bad. Then take it to your local shop and have the charging system checked; they will tell you if you need an alternator and/or battery. Good luck

84 camaro good battery and alt so the part store says but after one start battery is dead have all new wires ?

Battery is only used to start engine.
after charging battery, start car. remove Negative cable, if car dies, wiring to alternator is faulty.

if continues to run, shut off car and all accessories. install ammeter between Neg. cable and battery, if it shows a draw, pull fuses one by one to find circuit with draw while car is off.

What causes the battery and alternator to lose power?

It sounds more like your alternator is bad. The basics boil down to this: Your battery when fully charged is used to start your car and support your electrical needs as driving (lights, power windows, etc..) After starting your car the battery loses a little of it's charge and the alternator recharges battery as well as providing power for your ignition, electrical accessories. If the alternator goes bad or is weak, then you rely on more battery power which in-turn drags battery down until it no longer can start your car.
With this said, you can have any good parts store test both your starter and alternator and MOST will do it for free.

Vapor lock 84 camaro

what you described sound like your vent tube on your tank is plugged so what happens is that your fuel is over pressure causing it to foam thus starving the carb and running your float bowl dry. I would start by looking at the tube that comes off the tank. as far as your battery is concerned check to see if you have a loose ground or a positive cable leading from the altenator and from the engine to the fram ground cable. if the altenator is charging but the ground is loose then the battery will not get replacement voltage. if there is a loose positive and ground cable loose from the altenator then once the voltage on the battery goes below 10 volts the car will stall because there is not enough voltage to energize the coil.
