Default Starts fine - engine pulses - then runs fine

New to forum - just purchased '89 cabrio 162,000 km - own an '07 gti.
This question has probably been asked a lot - sorry - didn't want to scroll through hundreds of postings (although it's kind of fun).
My '89 cabby starts fine, runs well for about 10 minutes and then the engine goes into a consistently rhythmic revving pattern - kind of lurches when driving . It does this for another 10 - 15 minutes and then runs perfectly fine after that.
What's happening?

Thanks all.
