Does this car have the GM Vehicle Anti Theft System (VATS)? If so, first try using a spare key. The original resistor key may not be making sufficient contact after 20+ years. If not that and you have already checked your battery, it sounds like a starter issue.

check cold start injector and all injectors for that matter. Might be good idea to pull them and have them cleaned professionally. This should be done every few years.. I assume you have not cleaned your injectors in possibly decades?? (you know what they say about "ASSUME"-ing though).. LOL
