serious vibrations

My 156 has had a problem for a few months, when you tootle round nice and easy its fine, but when you give it some beans and get the revs around 3-5k rpm (being a diesel it red lines at 5) there was a lot of vibration, not just through the wheel, the whole car shook. Also when cruising about 80-90 mph it had a slight vibration and steering felt light.
When out yesterday it was a whole lot worse, was doing about 50, if kept the acc pedal steady it was ok, as soon as i put a bit of power on i thought my fillings where gonna be forced out, it shook like crazy!
Gonna get it into a garage asap just wanted a heads up what it could be!

Driveshaft inner joint would be my guess.
