Will the car start? No one knows...

I own an '84 5000S.

Sometimes when I turn the key to start the car, it just clicks, like I have
a dead battery, and the vacuum pump or whatever it is stops.... I then
unhook the + connection and rehook it up, and it'll be the same thing, or
sometimes it will go click-click-click-click really fast and the tach will
begin to move up--- but still no noise from the engine. So I'll get out of
the car, swear a bit, maybe even kick the tires, I dunno, then I'll get back
in, try hooking the battery up again, and presto-- it starts.

I don't think that this is a bad connection on the battery, it seems fairly
