Enjoy our run down of Britain's top 20 garage ornaments.

Talbot Horizon, 66.0% always on SORN, 74.0% seasonally SORN'd

The appearance of the Horizon on this list isn't that surprising.

They're still disappearing too, thanks to a lack of perceived classic car appeal outside of a certain faction of the classic car scene.
