1969 Camaro Help

My car is running rich ie the exhaust smells like gas and burns the eyes after a bit?

Am i looking at a new carburetor most likely? Also, I just replaced the spark plugs and they were black as night..

Thanks,

Re: 1969 Camaro Help

Definately running rich but....What engine? What size carb?

Frost Green '68 Coupe (yes they made Camaros that year); Dart Alum headed, dynamically balanced 327; Mighty Demon 750; 4sp; Cal-Tracs Rear Susp; ProCar Rally 1000's seats; 15" Rallys. (pretty plain-jane)
