Did it quit running while driving it? Or was it running fine, you shut it off, and when you tried starting it, it wouldn't start? Just cranks over.

If it was the later, the same thing happend to my ZXT. It was running great, parked it at home, and it wouldn't start the next morning. Fuel pump was still coming on, and I was getting spark. It turned out to be the head temp sensor. It came unplugged while driving, and still ran good. But it wouldn't start until I found it and plugged it in. Is yours good? Maybe it is loose or dirty. I took mine off again to see for sure if that was my problem, and when I take it off, it doesn't start.

Its not on the road yet not until march
it was sitting for about 2 days then I went to start it and drive it around the drive way just to keep every thing lubed but it just would not start

I will look at it I think I looked once before I pushed on it to make sure that it was in right
but who knows if that was the right thing I was pushing on=)

This may be a far cry for an answer, but it happened to me. My 83 N/A ran great one day, came out the next morning and it wouldn't start. Missed a Calc II test that day, professor not very happy. What it was was I could hear the fuel pump come on and then off. I assumed I had fuel, but did not have enough being delivered. I bought a new pump, but that was not it. The wire from the battery, not one of the big ones, but like a 12 gauge one was corroded down inside and I couldn't see it, the plastic was hiding it. Replaced that wire, everything was happy. Corrosion sucks! They are hard to find and annoying because they can be intermittant.
Good Luck,
