Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 83 280Z w/only 19K ORIGINAL miles.  It does NOT have power it should have until it gets about 30 mph.  It ia also hard to start , almost refuses to start when driven about 30 miles.  Sometimes it's an hour or more before it will start after you kill engine  ? I have NO idea  as to what's wrong .
