Doesn't sound silly to me.  The SAME EXACT thing happened to us when
we picked our car up ... only it was a 200 mile trip... worse, the
dangling rod jammed against part of the distributor and the throttle
stuck open from the last acceleration back to cruising speed.  The
throttle released by actually giving it more gas and freeing the rod.
Not knowing what had happened... it did it again... then I pulled
over to investigate...pretty hairy.  I fixed when I got home by reaching
into my tool box which still contained the parts from my old grey nag's
(my older 90) cruise unit.
