Spring-block system in an accelerated car

A block of mass mm is suspended by an ideal spring of force constant kk from the ceiling of a car. The car is traveling at a constant speed along a circular path with a net acceleration aa.

Due to the acceleration of the car the block and the spring system tilts by an angle θ\theta with the vertical. In this position, the block is displaced slightly along the spring and released. What will be the time period of the small oscillations of the block?
