but instead it ran great, like nothing was ever wrong.

Sadly, that's indicative of the feedback carbs. Something is on the fritz, but the computer doesn't know what. That's not a good sign. Personally I would AT LEAST pull that sucker off and install a non-feedback version.

could it have been air/vapor locked?p

Vapor lock doesn't occur on vehicles with electric fuel pumps.

maybe a piece of something in the carb?

Peices of something in the carb don't just up and dissapear. Stuff can get in the carb - I've even seen it happen. But if that's the problem, then it's going to come back.
