I don't think it could be vapor lock. Dan's car doesen't appear to be running long or hard enough for that. And if he doesn't have a computer, then the carb wouldn't have a mixture solinoid.
Could it be that there is some trash at needle seat? Does it smoke, (black?) Before you start it up the second time, look down the carb to see if there is a puddle of gas. Does it backfire when you're flooring it to keep it running? I'm grasping for straw here!
Keep us informed, Dan! This is interesting!
