First check that you don't have an exhaust restriction (Bad Cat). Because an engine miss for too long will destroy a cat, especially on an old car.

If no restriction, check injectors. There are two kinds of engine misfires: Ignition (which you've already checked)when a plug fails to spark, and fuel when an injector fails to fire.
