Have you had the alternator checked? I had a tbird doing something similar and it turned out the alternator went bad on me.

It "won't crank?" Meaning, it won't turn over, or it won't ignite?
If it won't turn over, then it is likely the battery or starter or ignition switch.
If it does crank (turn over) but won't start, and you are specifically not getting any fuel nor spark, then it is likely the hall effect sensor (see "control module" and "pickup coil"). It is two pieces, both on the distributor. Total cost will be around $50 ~ $75 or so.
You'll have to take the distributor out to get to the device, then set timing to complete the job.
