Check your egr vavle. i had this problem with my old cavalier and it was as easy as removing it and cleaning it. It's probably plugged up with carbon

do you get check engine codes?..have you done a leak down test and compression test to determine mechanical engine health?

Did you check for spark? Is it getting gas at the fuel rail? If there is no spark then it could possibly be the crank position sensor, ignition module or coils but the coils do not all go bad at the same time.

Well it sounds like you've started to do your "due diligence", but there are several things left out. Your problem could be many things. Something as minor as a vacuum hose left off, loose, or in the wrong place. And just because you changed the plugs and wires, don't mean you fixed your problem. Open your hood at night and see if you have any sparks "dancing" around. Another way to check this is to open your hood and spray a soapy water solution on your plug wires and look for sparks jumping around. If so replace your wires. You didn't mention what type of wires and plugs you used. I would reccommend NKG platnum plugs and a Bosch wire. I know this from experience,(the hard way teacher). It could even be the gas you are burning. I've owned a lot of Vettes, and I am the kind of guy who believes they should be driven. If not it's like having a beatiful wife and never taking her to bed.I know a lot of people who only drive them "once in awhile". Sitting in thier garage can cause many fuel problems, condensation, sludge in the carb, or filters etc. This can all lead to the problem you are describing.
Low speed miss- usually plugs
High speed miss- usually wires or valves
intermitten miss, fuel or electrical.
I hope I gave you some places to look to find your problem.
