Cant tell from here, but a main suspect would be your Main Relay. When they get old, the solder inside the relay cracks during operation due to electrical heat, and when it temporarily fails it shuts the car off. Waiting for a while to restart your car is the only option, until you either re-solder the relay or buy a new one. New main relays usually cost between $25-$90.
