Sounds like the choke is staying on for too long. In my mini with a manual choke if i left it on for more than 2 minutes the car would stall and not start for ages.
Could be the same problem.

Also it could be the Ignition Module in the dizzy, sometimes you could be driving along and the car would just stop then after a while you can start it but thats not very often,get it checked out because you don't want to leave your car on the side off the road if this happens.

Is the car on gas? Alot of LPG cars stall, but they usually start up again quickly. Could be the choke, I'm presuming it's a manual choke.

By the way, what was the first Falcon to come with a cold start injector?

He might have dirty injectors or one that is blocked.
