I would try removing and replacing the starter relay and fuse (pulling them out and back in will scrape off any corrosion on the terminals).
Also check the braided ground strap between the motor block and firewall, as this could be failing or have corroded terminals.

Otherwise, your starter motor may be getting weak and need replacement.
