Car doesn't shift and is much faster.

I have a 1991 300D 2.5, and I was on my way driving to work...I backed out of my driveway, put the car in drive and hit the gas. he car was very quick, but it did not shift up to the next gear. I slowed down and hit the gas again, but still no shifting to the next gear. I stopped, put it in park then D again and rove off. It then drove normal, but it was not as quick. It seems almost like it was starting in a lower gear, which I liked, but it did not shift. Later on that day I checked the fluid level and it was ok and clean. the tranny had the filter changed about 10,000 miles ago. The are no leaks or any other symptoms and I was not doing any work on the car in which I may have bumped or knocked anything.
What gives??
The car drives great and has not exhibited any tranny problems ever nor has it repeated this one again???
