    Sounds more like ignition problems to me.  I  would check out points, 
dwell, timing, ignition coil, plug wires and sparkplugs  FIRST before getting 
into carburetion issues.  Does it occur with cold  engine, or hot engine or both? 
 Sometimes an ignition coil will start to  break down when it gets hot.
    Good luck.

Driving  the car home, I noticed that it didn't run entirely smooth, but
instead  would kind of miss occasionally.  It didn't seem like it had all
that  much power.  Once when I tried punching it my wife, who was  following
me, said she could smell unburnt gas.

Any  suggestions?  I would like to get this sorted out before we leave  for
Buffalo next Monday.
