Ignition coil overheat, Ignition module goes open due to internal heat, distributor pickup coil intermittent thermal open. As all three are very common failures I would replace them, especially if they have never been replaced. Other problems that have been known to occur is the ECM power relay, the fuel pump power relay and the ignition switch.

Reman. Distributor might be a cheaper way to go.
