you most likely have a bad motor mount which on the pulls the accelerator cable and throttle~

I had a '59 pontiac that'd do that...if you went to far the linkage would flex to FULL acceleration and only the ignition key could save you~....when it settled down would return to normal...it was the motor mount~

Have you checked the tranny fluid? If it is low that could cause the tranny to drop out of gear on a turn then slam right back into gear when the fluid returns back into the pan. Then do what the judge stated about the mounts.
