Have you checked to see if it's getting fuel? try shooting some starting fluid into the intake if it tries starting then you have a plugged fuel filter or fuel pump.

Either the fuel filter or pump has gone bad. If the car sat for awhile, there is sediment and grime and grit in a gas tank that will settle to the bottom. My guess is when you started it you got some of that debris in the filter. Either that or someone put sugar in your gas tank. Or cut your gas line. That stuff happens sometimes unfortunately. Hope it helps and good luck.

It sounds like you have some **** in the gas tank that is being drawn to the pickup blocking it.
Have seen this and because it seems so random, it can drive ya nuts.

You might carry a coffee can with you and pull the line from the fuel rail when this happens stick it in the can and just have someone turn the key on for a few seconds.
Beware though, it comes out with force.

Also possible is a failed fuel pressure regulator.
Those aren't expensive and . . . well, not very good either.
