'91 Camaro RS engine will not start

Hi all, little bit of a forewarning I am new to this whole fixing up cars bit so bare with me. Anyhow, my camaro seems to have a mind of it's own when it comes to starting, somedays it will run fine all day no problems at all. Other days it will just go completely dead and not do a thing when I try to start it. I have replaced the alternator and battery, also replaced the battery posts. Now it is sitting out front of my house refusing to start, won't make a sound except for a little click when I try to start it. Wondering if anyone might know what the problem may be?

Remove and clean all wires going to the starter & solenoid.

Then coat the area with marine protectant.

Happy Racing!

Fog lights are not driving lights. They look dorky. Turn em off slow pokes.

How bout those dorks too scared to drive without headlights on in the daytime!
