Default 93 Saturn SL 5SPD, Runs stalls... runs

i bought a satun SL, its a 93', The car starts and idles just fine it would idle all day if i let it. As son as yo go to drive it, it goes like half a mile down the road, and stalls out and sputters. It takes about 5 mins to start it and itl make it about 200 feet down the road and do it again. I was in a neighborhood driving it today when this happend and someone pulled over and said they could see sparks coming outa the car as i was cranking it. Any ideas??

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Aside from the obvious advice of narrowing down what "sparks coming outta the car" means (as in, from where?), I'd start with a severely degraded ignition system. New spark plugs, wires, clean up coils and ignition module; there are about 38923924 threads here on this topic.
