81 Vette - choke light goes on and engine stalls

by Steve
(New Hampshire, USA)

I have an 81 vette with a 350 engine. It had been running well up until this last week. After a 50 mile highway cruise it developed a new problem. The vette now flips on the choke light and promptly stalls while driving down the road. If I wait a couple of minutes I can start the vette again and drive a few more miles before it happens again.


I am a new vette owner and NOT a capable mechanic. I do have a capable mechanic I will be taking the car to but would like to point them in the correct direction. Any common problem that are likely culprits?

Thanks for any ideas,

Steve
