1990 Cabriolet has no power on acceleration.  I mean it is really dogging, can't get out of it's own way.  As I SLOWLY pick up speed the car eventually kicks in and goes.

I figured it out... the bolt that holds down the distributor was loose and the timing was off. Thank for the support.

Cool, glad you got it. But kicking myself for not figuring it out, should have paid attention to you question. By running OK after slow acceleration should have thought of timing, and timing advance.
