well not knowing excacly what it does prior to stalling I will just gives some ideas that come to mind. Is the car getting gas, Check the fuel pump enertia switch located in the trunk and make sure its fully reset, I had a p73 police vic die on me and this was the fix, also this same car sometimes would die or wouldn't restart after it was warm because of a bad ecm/pcm power relay located on I believe the passanger side, Its a black fuse/relay box. you will see a red power lead connected to the battery. It should give a location diagram under the box cover. look at the model number on relay, if I remememer right I swapped it with the air conditioning relay to get home,

If the car stalls and sputters prior to dying check Fuel pressure/ filter, vacum lines in relation to the EGR evap gas return. It could be a number of things, need to know a bit more about the to give a better answer.

It could have been to honor a larger number of prominent people, because the street names were all picked by the Street Naming Committee in 1837. (see the related link) While it does limit the area in which any given street address would be found (either east or west half of the city center), it could be disconcerting to have a street name change while you are driving on it.
