I had something very similar to this last summer, I replaced the coil and
all the spark plug leads including the one to the coil - the problem has
never returned - and yes the problem did appear to be heat related, possibly
the coil was breaking up and would start to malfunction when hot after a
long run.

Just a thought.....

Just wanted to append my earlier post before everyone starts telling me to
look at fuel problems etc (thanks Skye but I am sure it is electrical)
When I said that my car didn't come back to life this morning what I
should have said is that it didn't come back to life in the standard 2
seconds.  I pushed the car across the street and then turned the key and
it went again.  I have felt the problem of fuel starvation and this was
not it this was an instant loss of spark. TIA.
