I need to hijack for a minute. Is there an actual relay for the starter? My 88's always been touchy about activating the starter. I've swapped starters, main relays, even ignition switches, and it's always. If the battery's fresh off the charger it'll go first try. If not, it'll take hitting the key several times. If it's been sitting a while it may not go at all. Can you post a pic of the relay or the cluster? I'll swap them all.

Your spade connector and wire at the starter is probably corroded or loose. I fixed mine by going further up the harness and running a new wire, then soldered and heat shrink the spade connector. I used a bare spade so I could make sure where the wire crimps could be soldered. Then I put a larger heat shrink around the outside of the spade to protect it from grounding out.
Another issue is the starter solenoid itself. Remove the starter. Clean the housing, remove the solenoid from the housing and clean the solenoid up with a soft copper brush. Then reinstall the solenoid. I cannot stress this enough, USE LOCTITE ON THE SOLENOID MOUNTING BOLTS! I didnt the first time and the vibration made the bolts come out.
Start with the spade repair then if that doesnt cure it clean the solenoid and starter.
