Good new, finally was able to solve the problem. First I replace the starer/solenoid, wrap the exhaust pipe near the starter. When for a test drive and upon my return turn off the engine, waited for about 5 minutes, the engine started. Decided to waited additional 5 minutes to make sure the first time was not fluke. To my surprise, the engine started again. Looks like I can get on the road again without worrying if the car is going to start. Thanks to everyone for their input.

Waiting is not a good test. Waiting gives the starter time to cool. Test it immediately after shutting it off. If it still starts good you are golden.

Do it both ways, mine starts right up when hot but if it sets a few min the heat builds up and no start. New wires, new starter and solenoid and wrapped pipe with starter heat shield. Going to shield the wire and add additional exhaust wrap below the starter to see if that fixes it. I think the 82s and others with catalytic converters build a lot of heat right after they shut off and sit for a few min. Wait another 20-30 min and it starts right up!

Glad you seem to have got the problem sorted Johnny.

The acid test will be to take the car on a decent run - 50 miles or so, then stop for fuel (that would be "gas" to you, "petrol" for me!).  The time to fill seems to be the perfect time required to let the problem manifest itself - ask me how I know!  If it re-starts when you're ready to leave the station, you've fixed it!
