1976 MG Midget won't start Sign In

I have a 1976 MG Midget that won't start. I took it out the other day went to the gas station put gas in it and as I was pulling out of the parking lot it died. I tried to restart and it would turn over and fire but die quickly. I purchased some starting fluid at the gas station and no luck. I towed the car home and changed the plugs and no luck. I replaced the coil and no luck. The vehicle wont fire on starter fluid so I am assuming it is an ignition problem. Any ideas or suggestions.

Thanks

Not trying to sound too out of line but a 76 MG that doesn't run is like an oxymoronCrazy

Since starting fluid didn't get a reaction you need to check for actual fire at the plugs and we can go from there.

Fun little cars but not high on the dependablility list IMO. Can throw same repairs time after time - arggh!
