First make sure all wires to the coil are connected up. I had a similar experience, and the hot wire (+) slipped off the coil while driving to work. If all that looks ok, disconnect the batt., and start testing the ignition circuts. Find the hot wire to and from the ignition switch-and check for continuity. If you dont have a wiring diagram for your year, or at least a close year (same style ignition switch) get one from a manual, or on-line (theSamba?) Do you have a circut/continuity tester?
