I own a 1984 Brat, and I live in Utah, where some mornings are as cold as 5-10 Fahrenheit, and the thing I found weird was the auto choke would make it idle at 2500 to 3000 RPM. I don't know if it's normal or not, and you can drive the car as soon as it is started (I installed a 5 speed transaxle into it FYI), but 2nd gear didn't like to work unless it got a 2 minute warmup.

At high elevations I would steer clear of anything with a carburetor. Something with fuel injection is the way to go.
