This sounds more like a bad ignition switch or a bad main relay then a bad ground...

Thank you, Trinitro, for the quick response! What and where is the main relay?

Check the fusible links at the starter for being melted or corroded.This would cause this problem also.

If this only occurs sometimes then it shouldn't be a fusibile link. Most likely it will be a bad switch. I'm not sure where the main relay is in the car, but probably a Chilton's book or an Alldata subscription will locate it for you very quickly.
