Default 87 911 won't start

I am the proud new owner of a 87 911 widebody slantnose that is gorgeous. I took it out for the second time today and I shut it off but when I went to start it again in 5 min. I get nothing. All accessories are working but nothing from the engine. Also the window fuse blows after 2 or 3 uses. Please Help !!!

Window fuse is probably due to a pinched wire where they go through the door frame to the body of the car. Years of opening and closing will cause the insulation on a few wires to break open and short out.

When you say the engine has nothing, I take it you mean when you hit the key, nothing turns over, no noise from the starter, etc. If so, then probably has something to do with the battery or alternator. Keep in mind it takes very little power for your dash lights, radio, etc.
