A MANUAL choke??? Yegads....I`m having a flashback! :-) Could be a clogged fuel filter or time for a carb rebuild. Try pushing the choke cable halfway in immediately after starting, and see if that prevents the flooding situation.

P.S.: Almost forgot the basics....pull off the air cleaner, and have someone work the choke while you watch to determine that it`s actually functioning as it should.

Maybe you have a stuck float or choke, try spraying some carb cleaner in there, best bet is to have the carb rebuilt.

was to try to start it without the choke, and as liitle of throttle as possible, then if it caught, try to feather the throttle to keep it running, until it warmed up.

I have had too many years of FI cars to remember correctly, however, it sounds like time for a carb rebuild.

Good luck
