You're insane! I don't know how people coped without power steering. I drove a car without it in Germany and nearly killed us all on an ausfahrt.
Got home from work today and in the side street where I park the car was a space big enough for two and a half cars. I passed it in order to turn round to face the right way and when I got back to it, some berk had dumped his car bang in the middle of it. Thanks to power steering and generally being an awesome driver I can usually put my car on a sixpence. Today was no exception, with the added pressure of having a car behind waiting to pass, steamed-up windows and rain-obscured mirrors.
