Dove my Camaro to work this morning, longest highway drive since I've owned it, about 22 miles. About 3 miles from my exit, I tipped into the throttle in 6th (~68mph and ~1800 rpm), and noticed a hesitation/miss. Pushed in the clutch and it died immediately. My first thought was that the PCV hose came loose from the carb base (again). I coasted for about 1/4 mile preparing to do some roadside fix, but figured I would see if I could re-fire. Bump started and ran "ok", then cleaned up and idled fine 2 miles later when I exited. Accelerated cleanly from the stop and for the next mile or so until I got to work. Shut it off and it re-fired and idled no problem. Just a fluke or ???. Car has all new fuel system, pump, tank, rebuilt carb. New Accel HEI with Summit cap/coil, MSD wires, and AC plugs Runs 185 deg all the time. I've had the car on longer drives but not so much extended highway driving. Never had this issue. Any ideas? Thanks!
