Quick update:

After I checked the angel eye wiring in my car the issue went away for a few days, but it did come back. I even experienced the issue with the angel eyes completely removed from the car. About a month ago I decided to clean the starter contacts and the issue has gone away completely. I even rewired the angel eyes and have yet to experience any more problems. I guess there was some corrosion on those contacts that was causing the failed starts. Interestingly enough, I didn't see anything out of the ordinary when I was in there cleaning them. Oh well.
