It doesn't sound like the security system. The vats cuts out the fuel pump and starter at startup.
Something simple, perhaps fuel filter? Maybe check OBD for faults.

I know it's tedious when it comes to electrical stuff, but you're dealing with 35 year old wiring. It could be anything, but start with things near extreme heat, such as wiring and connections on or near the distributor. Check all ground connections, it's a plastic car so grounds are important. I actually added an extra ground strap on the right side of my car. Old connections, brittle wires seem to be a good part of the trouble on older Vettes. The ground block under the battery is a really good place to start.
