fuel Starved

I have a 1984 2 door 280CE. When it's dead cold, it starts right up. After driving it for about 15 minutes, it shuts down and won't restart without the help of starting fluid. Sometime this won't help. After about 45 minutes of the car sitting, the car starts with the help of starting fluid. What gives?

I have heard starting relay swith (where is it?) or the fuel pump?
