Well since the lockup solenoid didn't do it I'm back to the ignition pickup in the distributor.

Reminds me of the Hall Effect (ignition pickup in distributor on pre-Magnum fuel injected Dodges). When it's going bad it'll fail randomly, usually at a most embarrassing moment. Sit a few minutes, then it'll start again. Will light back up going down the road just like you were saying. Just gets worse til it quits. Not exactly the same part in design, but shares a common function.
