Intermittent dead skip.. What are possible causes???? 300SEL

After driving this car for the first time in a while, I noticed an intermittent DEAD skip.. Most noticable at idle, and when taking off.. Sometimes, however, the car will idle, and run perfectly. I was not able to dulicate the problem in the garage as it does not happen very often..

I have not yet done anything to try to corrcet this problem, but I'm searching for possible causes..

My gut feeling is that a plug wire is going bad.. If they weren't so expensive, I would just stick a set on there..

In the last 5K miles, Ive relaced the cap, rotor, and plugs..

Is there anything else besides what I've mentioned, that could possibly cause a skip??? I really want get this car running right.. I'm getting close...
