If the motor is turning over strong, just not firing, then I would guess that your starter is fine. Sounds like its either still a fuel problem, or possibly an ignition issue. I've had electrical issues in the past caused by stereo upgrades (amps and subs), but I'm unsure as to the extent to which this could affect the ignition system. Hope you get 'er figured out.

If you have a carburetor engine and you are sure that it is getting fuel and the engine turns strong have the ignition system checked out. Does this car still have points and condenser? If so it may be time to change them. If electronic ignition (HEI from a 75 or later engine) then the ignition module may have gone bad.
