Are you running a choke? That sounds a lot like an electric choke on a rich carb. Electric chokes tend to cool off faster than the manifold heat type. Common problem. Don't get me wrong though. If the choke and carb are properly set it can eliminate hot / cold start problems. Keep in mind that if you touch the accellerator pedal after a brief cool-off period, you will set the choke. Maybe you should try not touching the gas when warm. Those old carberated cars had to be stroked just right. I had a 76 Chevy Pickup that you'd pump twice on a cold morning and barely have to touch the gas when warm. I think that is why people first started talking to their cars.
