Anyone experience this before? Any ideas? Like I said, it is a 98 OBW. Has the 2.5 and 5spd.

Is it bad?
It goes away after a minute or two, and it only occasionally occurs.

Next time it does it, check under the hood if possible to see if the throttle is fully closed. If not it might be something as simple as a rubber carpet catching on the gas pedal or throttle linkage needing lubrication, or...
I use a heavy rubber (water catching) carpet during the winter and my feet make it move forward bit by bit. Same thing happened to me once and it was the carpet.
