Ok, background.

Driving down the road at about 35mph when the guages, clock, etc flash - and the engine dies. After that you can try and start the car - it fires right up but immediately dies. If you WOT while starting, the engine will spool up but again immediately die. From start to dead is about 2-3 seconds.

What's been done:
Cap and Rotor replaced about 10,000 ago
Spark plugs, and Wires about 20,000
Fuel filter about 10,000

After the fact I've replaced:
Fuel Pump
Main Relay

Any ideas? I feel like the engine is working fine - something little has to be off or something!? There where a few threads from years ago that seemed to have the same symptoms - but the OPs never finished the thread with the results :(

Fixed!!!

Thank you everyone... it was the ignition switch!
The solder had melted down on one of the contacts and shorted it.
