From the description that you gave it sounds like you might have a busted motor / transmission mount or your E-brake may be sticking after the vehicle sits for a while. If the motor or trans mount is broke, then when you accelerate to get the vehicle moving then the motor or trans may be lifting off of the broken mount and dropping back down giving you the feel that you bumped into, or ran over something. If the E-brake is sticking, then when you start the vehicle after its been sitting for a while, the brake shoes jerk release from the rear drums and it will also feel like you have bumped into, or run over something.

Just a few things for you to check out.

CV joint?

I would open the hood and jack up the front of the car, and just start trying to move stuff like the CV halfshafts, the engine if one of the mounts are broken. with the front off the ground trun each front tire and check for play in the driveline, you should be able to do this while looking under the car and looking over the fender at the engine.

Having someone else looking while doing these things will most likely help.
