Your condenser is going out. You will soon see your points burning down to a nub. You engine will still run but very poorly.

You can find a shop that still has an ignition analyzer and pay the $50 bucks to have this gone through, but you can replace the points and condenser for a lot less.

And check to see that the wire from the condenser is making a good connection.
