Forget about the OBD stuff, He was just being funny...You dont have it.. The Fuel Computer is sitting down Flat,Black most times, The Ignition one is on its side.Silver looking.
If possible next time , See if you have Spark when it happens, you can use a spare plug in one of the ignition wires and crank the car, you SHOULD see a spark from that plug.. If you do its not the ECU(computer). If there is no spark you have a ignition issue. If you have spark then you have a Fuel problem MAYBE.. but it will eliminate the Ignition Computer or ECU..
Find a mechanic who understands older cars and will talk to you in regular terms so you can explain what he said...
