Do dealerships normally transport trucks this way? I thought they did it by semi or had T-tags.
Why else would they be new and tagless staying so close in line at the same speed?

usually when transporting cars, dealers use regular state license plates with "dealer" on it, or those paper temporary tags.
intriguing, but most likely it could be very innocent
did you notice the drivers? were they military type or just your average joe?

I was driving through Arizona mountains once and happened upon the same sort of scene.
There were 4 or 5 cars w/nothing on them. All black, no emblems, no plates, tinted windows. They were going the same direction I was going, so we kept trying to get close to see what/who they were. Each time we would get close enough to pass one, it would speed up and simply would not allow it. They finally all sped up and I lost them.
Finally, about 15 miles down the road I saw a couple of the cars pulled into a 'hole in the wall' diner/road stop. I pulled into the place, and tried to walk by one of the cars on my way into the little store. One of the drivers 'pops' out of the store, as if to say "get away from the car"!
The owner of the store rang up my soda, and of course I whispered to him, "what's all that about"?
He told me it's a normal scene in that area. Car companies bring their 'proto-models' out to the desert to test drive and run them hard. He said the manufactures remove all emblems even tint windows to keep others (like me!) from know what type or brand of vehicle it is. They want to keep the "secrets" away from competitors eyes!
Sounds like what you witnessed. You probably just witnessed the models coming out in 2007!
