That helps know what to do next. Now we know the cause and dont have to look elsewhere. New coil and look at your ballast resistor while down there and make sure it is still good also.
I learned that lesson when I was 16 years old and melted the coil in my 48 Plymouth while cruising and hanging out in the A&W drive in listening to my 8 track.....
BTW, those little trickle chargers say to use only on a fully charged battery for some reason.
anyway, glad you didn't burn your car to the ground!
