1993 Honda Civic del Sol - 1.6L 4 Cylinder 198,000 mi,
I figured it was due to the fact that half my exhaust (at one point straight from headers) rusted and broke off. However I had most of it welded back together and the steering wheel still shakes like crazy at idle. You can feel the vibrations through your whole body, and sorry Beach Boys, they weren't very good.
