1993 Lincoln Town Car V8 107000 miles

Our lincoln will start but when we turn it off and go to restart it, it wont start. If we wait about a half hour to an hour it starts with no problem. The battery and alternator are fine. Any ideas? Please help I need the car to go to work.

If it cranks slow, it's one thing, if no crank it's another, what does it do?
