    Hello Yoshi

    #1 would probably puzzle most listeners; you would say "...after parking his car..."

    #2 is unhealthy but grammatically correct.

    Have a good Sunday,

    Thank you for your reply.
    How about the following sentenses. gramatically correct?
    #3 He was already waiting outside her house with his car parked.
    #4 In fact, the defendant was occasionally permitted to spend the night at the house with his car parked outside.
    Thank you.

    4 is fine to me, and 3 is OK, but I'm not sure whether you mean he was in the car or standing waiting.

    Thank you for your comments.
    I'm not sure about this meaning , either.It was since I read this sentence
    in the internet. But I understood that it has no mistake gramatically at
    least.
