Thats a strange one. have you tried to put a battery charger on the car and try thte blip.
Spark should not drop when the throttle is touched. No real connection between the systems. What type of dizzy. HEI can do all kinds fo strange things with low voltage or bad coil or moduale. Best to check the system over and make sure the cap and rotor are not cracked or broken any where. also make sure the wires going to the distributor are not touching anything when the engine moves for stepping on the gas. Might just be a bad wire grounding out when you hit the gas. also be sure the ignition is using thick strong car type wire and does not have some speaker wire running for power. Need thick wire that will not melt when it gets hot.
USally this type of problem is from the power wire touching the header or manifolds but can be in the back of the engine as well.
