Question about 1990 Chevrolet K1500
Make sure all the contacts on your battery tight are clean. Make sure your earth connector to the engine block and/or chassis is good. Check the cable that goes to your starter mother is clean and tight. I had a similar problem to this with my car a while back. I called the auto club (NRMA) out to help thinking my battery was dead. He got the ignition key and went, start off start off start off start off in rapid succession and then held it on start and the engine cranked over and started. The problem was with the contacts on the starter motor solenoid. Each time you start over the years a little spark jumps across the contacts and makes a little bit of corrosion on the surfases. I think the on off think burns a little clean patch but it is only temporary. I had my starter motor reconditioned and now it works like new again. My car is 89 model so it is about the same age as yours.
