Default Why is my car jerking when I drive?

I have an 87 5KSQ. Lately, I have noticed that when I drive it will jerk, sometimes accompanied by the feeling that I am driving straight into the wind (On extremely non-windy days). It all goes away when I push the clutch pedal. Is this simply my clutch slipping/grabbing, or should I look a little more carefully into it?

It's not related to the way the engine is running? Unless there's oil or something on the clutch disc, or the pressure plate is weak.
