Several items come to mind, but first off I would make sure all basic tune-up/preventive maintenance items are serviceable: Plugs, plug wires, distributor cap and rotor, fuel filter. Check JoeF's post "The Basics" also.

Next item, have it scanned for any trouble codes (AutoZone will do it for free).

Other possibilities - Ignition module (breaking down when it heats up), fuel pump (will need to do pressure check).
