You have rusty rotors heat them up causing the block then hose them off at the car wash. If they don't improve you may machine your rototrs.

Front rotors may be warped, or rusted from sitting. After driving it for awhile and it still shimmys, should take it in to be looked at, it may also be in the front end parts like a bad tie-rod end.
