|13.5 Participio passato and past participle part 4|
The car repaired we can go on holidays.
If the car is repaired we can go on holidays.
The car is the subject of the verb to repair, but not the executor. It is the goal of this action. And obviously there is no relationship to the subject of the finite verb, to go. Concerning the mood and the tense the past participle depend on the finite verb. If for instance the finite verb is a conditional, the past participle correspond to a simple past (actually to a simple past conjunctive, but that doesn't make normally any difference in English.)
The car repaired we could go on holidays.
If the car were repaired we could go on holidays.
