I was driving my 68 to drop of the kids, about 15 mins. Went in dropped them off came out to start the car heard a click and then nothing. No noise when turning the key again. The lower right idiot light cam on but nothing else. Tried a few times and nothing. Got out and wiggled the wires around in the engine compartment, could not see anyhing loose. Tried it again and nothing. Waited a few minutes then tried it again and it started right up. Ran great to work(30min) and home in the evening. Went out to start it this morning and the same thing happened :( . What do you guys think it could be and where should I look first?
Thanks for the help

Battery cables are always a good beginning point. They need to be clean and tight. The large ground cable to the block can cause that problem also. That also needs to be in good shape.

hey john i was wondering if they is any way to test the big ground cable to the block. cause mine wont start all the time either
Usually I don't test them. If the ends look old and junky looking, I replace them. Buy mine over the counter at the parts store.
