Did you check the oil lately? Was there any noise before this?

Did it break or jump a timing chain? Have you turned the engine over with the distibutor cap off to see if the distributor turns?

Sorry I meant does it have a streched timing chain? If you pull the distributor cap off and turn the engine over by hand (wrench) till the rotor moves then turn it the other direction and see how many degree's it takes for the rotor to turn.
