Did this just start happening out of the blue, or was there other work just done to the car ? Besides the new starter solenoid.

Could be an ignition switch going bad, that's where I'd start first investigating. They're not that expensive and fairly easy to replace.

And disregard my reply to your other post, you found it lol.

Canooter valves only came on 88 and 89's.

OP, I missed a comma in your first post. Did you already replace the ignition switch ? It's not clearly stated.
