Question Can someone explain this hand gesture?

Driving to work today and there's this guy in an old red SUV of sorts gets on 183 S from 360 at the same time as me. So I'm driving pretty fast, but not exactly racing, and I notice the guy is behind me the whole way. Doing a lot of overtaking and lane changing, and the guy is always there, though at a respectable distance. Anyway, the freeway ends and I slow down to turn onto Cameron, and as the guy drives past, he's clearly making an 'O' gesture at me, with his thumb and forefinger. I thought it must be respect for the car or something, but get this, my car is in the shop and I'm in a rental - an Impala no less!

I'm British and obviously without clue, so can someone please explain to me what this all means?

Keith.

He's just approving of your car or driving

Was the index finger of his other hand moving in and out of the "O"?

If so, I don't think he was saying okay. He was saying he "likes" you...

One time I was driving pretty fast down 75 towards plano and this guy holds up a card that says 55 and looks over at me (i was beside him). I'm thinking, uhhhhhhhh.......huh? Then he just kept on driving not looking over anymore, strange eh?

Someone tell me what that means

So he sped all the way up to bitch about your speed? What a hypocrite!

I'm not sure why the red SUV was approving of my driving. I was just rolling along in a Chevy. Now were I in my prezza, then he might have something to gape in awe at!
