Hi Rick, how long has the car been sitting? If it's been for a prolonged period you could have a fuel quality/contamination problem. The first thing I would check though, is the distributor cap and rotor. A visual inspection is all that's needed, no fancy tools or meters. Just take it off and look inside. I wouldn't be surprised if the coil terminal INSIDE the cap is burned off. A quick test for fuel delivery is to have a helper cycle the key on and off while you listen underneath the rear of the car to see if the fuel pump is running. If it is, try loosening an injector line to see if the fuel squirts or dribbles out. If it squirts out then fuel delivery probably isn't the problem. Good luck and keep us posted.
