I got home with the car’s own power, the ignition keeps cutting off and on again, I had to stop do some shade tree coil replacement and go on. I am not sure if it really the coil or the distributor. What is difficult to diagnose is the intermittent nature of the cut off. 

Great to see some familiar faces and some new faces. I hope everybody will get home safe.

See you next year.

As the coil heats up it can cause an intermittent issue with the quality of the spark. Had a similar problem a few years ago and switched to a new coil, no more problems.

I had the same problem on the way home, just outside of Salinas. We stopped for lunch and let the car cool down. Ran fine the rest of the way home. Not sure if it was the coil or the MSD box. I'll probably change out both (12 yrs. old) when I upgrade to the Magna Spark system.
