Larry, I had a 455 Trans Am that had the same problem. It was well built and ran great, but got 7-10mpg. It wasn't a show car but it was nice, what I found out was after I replaced the fuel tank and added a few in line filters before the initial fuel filter in the engine bay it got much better gas mialage, from 7-10 to 12-16mpg. By having cleaner fuel and airorating it more often it got way better gas mialage. That car was like a fish in a fish bowl, if you didn't keep the water clean enough and enough oxygen in the water the fish will die. Not a mechanic but its worth a try.
