My '87 does the same thing. A terrific vibration, but _only if I pull
back on the shift lever_. That is, just driving along, it's fine. If I'm
between about 40 and 60 MPH (worse at higher speeds) and I pull the
lever more towards me (maybe 10 lbs force), a vibration comes from
nowhere and remains until I release the handle. I discovered this about
a week after I got the car (in June); it hasn't changed.

Perhaps your linkage is out of whack (GPR, $14/lb) or needs some
