I seem to have developed an intermittent starting problem. Ran a few errands the other day, and stopped for a bite to eat. When I climbed back in the Lafer to head home, turning the key gave me only two red lights on the dash and a whirring noise. The motor wouldn't catch or turn over. After several more tries failed, I was about to call Hagerty for a jump or a flatbed tow when I decided to give it one last chance. To my relief (and utter surprise) it cranked right up, and the engine ran smoothly all the way home.

The next day, however, it did the same thing in my garage. I put it on a trickle charger for a couple hours and it's been starting OK since. Have to wonder if the trouble may be in my distributor, although it's less than a year old and appears fine.
