2002 stalls when warm?

I've had this problem off and on for a few years
Sorry if this has already been answered in the past...
When my 1975 2002 is warm and has been driving for a while, it stalls at intersections and traffic unless I keep the rpms up manually by foot. My hoses appear to be in good shape and connected. So, what's the next likely suspect?

What kind of carb? What type of choke? Sounds like the choke is not behaving properly after warmup.

redline weber

Hey John
Thanks for responding!

Your theory makes sense.
I used to monkey around on an old motorcycle so Im familiar with the concept of a choke.
Although not familiar enough to know what one looks like on my own car.

Apparently I have a Redline Weber carburetor
I am stumped about the choke though
Where would I look?
What's it look like?

Snooping around I see a few open "holes" that have nothing going in or out of them.
They've been like that for a few decades now (this is my family's car I've come to inherit)
I took a picture of one, do you think its from the original carb?

Looks like a 32/36 DGAV. A = agua, a water-controlled choke, so there should be hoses leading to/from it. Check out:
