Gallery: Britain's favourite garaged classics

Spring has begun and many cars are coming out of storage for their owners to enjoy them in the summer months. It's a rite of passage that happens every Easter, a classic car ritual for many owners on an annual basis.

But some cars stay in their garages rather more than others. And with that in mind, we take a look at the classic cars most likely to be registered, but declared off-road on a Statutory Off Road Notificaton (SORN) by their owners. Enjoy our run down of Britain's top 20 garage ornaments. We'll quote two figures: 'always SORN'd', which means the number of cars that don't see a tax disc at all, and the 'seasonally SORN'd', which quotes how many cars get a tax disc at some time during the year... this list makes fascinating reading.

Rover SD1, 64.7% always on SORN, 73.1% seasonally SORN'd

The Rover SD1 was the ubiquitous 1990s banger, and it's only now beginning to emerge from the doldrums. Again, many are off the road, which we would suggest is as much about them being preserved for the future, as just going to rack and ruin in their owners' garages. The SD1 occupies a good position in the classic car world, because it's admired by many people - but is still cheap to buy, and easy to get part for.
