You don't say wheather or not you have header's? If you do you are expierencing what is known a "heat soak" (very common in chevy's with headers or exhaust pipes close to the starter). The heat from the exhaust is causeing the windings in the starter to get hot and create a lot of resistance there for you solenoid cannot flow enough current to turn the motor over.
There are two different fixes for this.
1. You can install a heat shield around the starter to protect it some.
2. Or like I have, you can install a Heavy Duty FORD starter soleniod (MAD Enterprises sells a good,complete kit with a very good explanation of the cause, Mark Hamilton is a great guy to deal with) on you car.
This will cure the problem for ever.
