Rack & Pinion vs. Power Steering?? HELP?

Hey Ya'll, I'm looking to buy a 1938 Chevy 4-door Sedan, but it does not have Power Steering, but has Rack & Pinion. I'm a pretty small woman with Rheumatoid Arthritis. Will I have a problems steering in parking lots or tight spaces or should I spring for the extra money and have Power Steering put on?

Hi Breeze,

So you have decided on a 38 huh?

I would go for the power steering. Its just a rack change and then a power steering pump, mounts and pulley set plus hoses.

I think its money well spent.
