Newbie with black smoke problem

I need some help please. I just bought an 84 380se and im having severe problems with smoke. When i start off from a stop if I hit the gas hard AT ALL the car is very sluggish and blows thick black smoke. If I hit the gas slow I have no problems...other than people pissed im going so slow. On the highway no smoke...the minute i stop and try to go smoke again. Ive seen so many threads about from head jobs, o rings, ozygen sensor..fuel problems...cold start/warm start... vacuum lines...spark plugs even distributor. I'm so lost please any help would be appreciated!!
