You quit too soon when it got dark. Engine running in a dark area is one way to check for failing insulation on your plug wires. Darkness wil allow you to see arcing to ground along the wires. Sometimes the wires just breakdown internally. Usually you can test for this with an VOM. Bad plug wires are a classic cause for the symptoms you described. Get the real wires, do not fool around with aftermarket wires. They just don't last. Maybe you should think about a new cap and rotor. Might as well do the whole job right.
