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

Talbot Samba, 68.5% always on SORN, 74.8% seasonally SORN'd

The Talbot Samba was an agreeable parts-bin special built up by Peugeot after it took control of Talbot at the very end of 1978. It was very obviously based on the Peugeot 104, but had enough style and character of its own to build up a small but quite loyal following.
