The real question is, do you have power going into the coil?

Like the previous poster, check for 12 volts at the coil ,that engine is an easy check, unplug the connector from it, there are 2 wires, use a digitsal volt meter set on DC volts, put the red on one side of the coil connector and the black on the other side, have someone crank the engine while cranking you should see 12 volts then nothing 12 volts them nothing, sort of like a signal, that would tell you if all is good up to the coil, if not then usually the bad part is the hall effect switch that is in the distributor,

Mine just did the same thing. Driving on the freeway and BAM! Nothing. Thought it fuel pump but I hear it kick on. I'll try the DC test.
