Thumbs up What are the odds of this happening?

Never sold my Ivory 84 300CDT as a parts car so when the weather started to cool, decided to run it for another winter since it is registered until next summer (windows and A/C don't work). After 5 months of sitting, it fired right up like it always does..amazing. Had to drive it around to clean the rust off of the rotors but now its back on the highway turning out 110 miles per day at 80+ mph. So last Friday night, I'm in the high speed lane cruising south on MA 495 and traffic started to back up. I move over to the inside lane and merge into an opening in front of....a Black 300CDT...we continued like that for several miles until traffic cleared out and I left him behind. I've seen him occassionally on the highway over the past several years but this was wild, at least in my mind.

Well, he probably made a note to be good to you and let you in instead of saying, "tough luck" and just closing the gap. That has to add a little to the probability.
