Ran When Parked news

Welcome to Ran When Parked

A photo of me taken when I was about a year old shows me smiling at the wheel of my grandfather’s Renault 6. I’ve had the same passion since my very early childhood: French, Italian and German cars.

Thanks to a family member I started collecting model cars when I was about two years old and haven’t stopped since. What’s changed since is that my collection now includes a fair amount of real cars. This part of the collection started when I was fifteen with a 1984 Saab 900 S with a bad transmission. Unregistered and uninsured, this car was impounded and crushed but since then I’ve had no less than a dozen cars. Italian cars are a favorite but I’ve had another Saab, French cars, German cars and even a Toyota.

The purpose of this site is to put up strictly car-related anecdotes that tell what I encounter on a daily basis. Tech tips, test drives, barn finds, etc.
