Hi there!
Is it correct to combine these two sentences, using a participle:

- I really liked the blue sports car. The car was sitting in the showroom.

like this?

- I really liked the blue sports car, sitting in the showroom.


Especially, I need a comma here, don't I? Otherwise, I would be sitting in that showroom, or? Or is it confusing either way?

Yes, you can combine the sentences (good job!)

No, you don't need the comma.


Another example -

I like the girl singing on the stage.

"sitting in the showroom" describes the car, not I"
