Default 2007 Toyota Camry Issue

I have a recently purchased 2007 Toyota Camry with around 173K miles. I noticed after a few days, the front end shaking sometimes when accelerating. I had the dealership I bought it from look it over. They said they found nothing wrong with transmission or engine mounts. They told me to take it to a local, highly reputable shop. I did so. They hooked it up and ran a diagnostic test, as well as test drove it. The owner/tech said he didn't notice anything driving it himself. Go figure. Needles to say, in the recent weeks and especially recent days, it has gotten very bad. When I accelerate or put power to the drive train, it shakes horribly at times. It is worst at 30-50 MPH and as you lift of the accelerator it smoothes right out, so I know it's not suspension. It has to be in the front wheel drive or drivetrain right?

Any help would be great. Thank you

Any shake in the steering wheel?

Yes, could be a axle.

The car is front wheel drive.

Yes, the steering wheel, the dash, the passenger seat, everything shakes when it's at its worst.

Shake in steering steering wheel as you sense something is forcing the wheel to move back in forth?

No, everything shakes when you accelerate at speeds of 30-60mph. It's not all the time, but often. When you let off the accelerator it stops for the most part.

A few things to try:

1) When the shutter happens, maintain throttle accel but touch brake pedal enough to turn on the brake lights. Determine if the shutter stops.

2) Accelerate car but leave in a lower gear (don't over rev).

Did the shops inspect the tires for issues and or bent rim?

Not yet. I'm taking it to my mechanic tomorrow. He's my neighbor and well versed of the issue. Thank you for your comments, very much appreciated.
