wtf?  Is it backfiring through the carbs or out the exhaust? Now it 
sounds like the ignition is dying, the cylinders are loading up with 
fuel, then the ignition lights off again and causes the backfiring.

You need to go through the distributor wiring for a loose wire or a bad 
rotor or a bad connection/fuse on the white wire circuit.. also look at 
the wires at the ignition switch (more white wires (which also run the 
fuel pump, BTW)
