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.

Austin Montego, 67.9% always on SORN, 69.6% seasonally SORN'd

The Montego's apearance on this list is surprising. Many people don't yet consider them classics, so the idea of tucking away such an unloved car nice and safely in their garage might seem a bit puzzling. But it's an encouraging sign that the car's small band of fans is indeed enthusiastic about its chosen car.

And the small difference between seasonal and non-seasonal SORN declarations would indicate that they're more than happy to use their cars all year round.
