Battery draw

I just bought a 1993 GT convertible. Previous owner said that is was "hard to start sometimes". I gave the battery (relatively new) a full charge and had no problems until I let is sit for a few days. Tried to start it after sitting a while and it would not start. battery dead. put a jump start and it kicked right over. I believe something is draining the battery. Any ideas on what is a "usual" cause of a battery drain. Nothing apparent leap out.

thanks Al

Battery Draw

I know its a wild long shot, could be a dozen things, but thought maybe there were USUAL culprits.

Thanks for the link. VERY HELPFUL.
