Angry My Car is decelerating when I drive

I have a 1969 Mercedes Benz 250 and it's decelerating in between shifts. I'll put it in first and it goes fast then really really slow, I'll put it in 2nd and it speeds up a little then it once again accerlates really really slow (all the while cars are honking at me to move), same in 3rd and 4th gear. It's soo annoying. I just took it out of the shop and the mechanic said he changed the carborator and did a tune up but that I would need the other carborator to be changed out soon. But I didnt think he meant 2 days later soon!!! There has to be something else wrong with it!! Right?? Can someone help me?
