Can confirm, driving a car with locking pliers (or an adjustable wrench) in place of steering wheel is possible, though definitely at a significant penalty. I'd call it -5 for the locking grips, -7 for the adjustable wrench (it tightens down enough but is more likely to slip loose). Shave a point or two off the penalty if you have two of them, and there's room to attach both — gives you a much better grasping area.
