Stalling

I recently bought an old 1980 Volare and I changed the Carb, wires, distributor, PCV valve and some other small things.

Now the car will start and idle relatively fine but when I put it into gear the car dies....

Any ides??

Is it an automatic? If so, when the car is put into drive the engine revs drop significantly, if the idle speed is too low for some reason that would explain the stalling. As you changed the carb, I'd suggest you check the fuel/air mixture is correct by hooking her up to a diagnostics machine!
