That's why god gave us two hands- one to push... and the other hand to pull!!

Anyone with power steering can park using two hands. It's just laziness or bad habits.

LOL----- teach me how to drift that way..
2 years ago at the Melbourne Motor Show, I saw a precision driver in his 206 drift into a parking position. Like no jokes, it was a standard size parking position that you would reverse into (and get it wrong 1 time out of 10). I think I got a video somewhere.. purely amazing!
