Especially if you (or the previous owner) had a lot of stuff hanging from the keychain of the ignition key, it could be that contacts in the ignition lock mechanism are worn out/corroded/dirty from arcing, causing an intermittent problem. Try wiggling the ignition key with the car on to see if that causes the problem. You can disassemble & clean the mechanism, or even buy a new one.

Does the engine die/ try to stall along with it?

I'm guessing radio cuts out. AC blower, dash lights? Speedo/tach drop to 0?

I like armand's theory though. That or an important fuse (pehaps under the hood in that fuse box) has been tapped to power something? Fuse taps spread the factory terminals and can make a fuse break contact intermitantly.
