Default Looking at new edge. Is this normal?

Hey all. Im used to driving a 05+ GT. Looking at scooping a 02 GT, 5spd, 70k miles. 100% stock. The car looks clean, but at idle, there seems to be a lot (or at least to me noticable) drivetrain vibration. You can feel it in the floor, and in the car. at driving speeds its fine. you can feel it in the shifter too. Is this normal for these cars? (hard to tell without experiencing it firsthand, but figured I would throw it out there)

i never had this severe of a problem, as you describe, but i did find after inspecting the underside of my car, that one of the driveshaft bolts was loose. check that out, and look to see if the driveshaft is affecting anything while idling. the shifter will shake a bit at idle, that is normal.
