Post My 258 Won't Stay Running

I have an '82 I-6 and it will start but after a minute or two it will die. And then it will start back up again like nothing is wrong with it.
it is getting plenty of fuel so it has to be electrical and its not the distributor or the coil...
Does anyone know what the problem might be?
