My '86 does a similar thing. Cruising along and it runs rough and then sometimes recovers and sometimes dies. Relays all tested good. My mechanic thinks it is the ignition switch. After it dies sometimes I get no "buzz" from the pumps and of course, she will not start. I have jiggled the key while in the switch on one occasion and it started the buzz so I am leaning towards the switch. I guess they are known to be an issue on the older cars. The symptoms also seem to be that of a bad CDI. About a $500 fix either way.
