Modified Citroen Saxo VTS
Michael Fisher’s modified Citroen Saxo VTS
Remember the Citroen Saxo? For a time they were the pinnacle of modifying; they were two-apenny and usually accompanied by three tonnes of badly fitted, badly sprayed fibreglass bodykit. Seriously, what were we all thinking?!
The Saxo craze then died down for a few years, with no one (other than ex-Fast Car chimp Benny’s brown Euro Citroen Saxo number which earned iconic status in its own right) quite able to pull it off to bring the little French hatch back to the top of the modifying game. However, my Citroen loving friends, I’m pleased to say that’s all changed. Thanks to Michael Fisher’s carbed, tucked, smoothed, flocked and all-round fresh VTS, Saxos are well and truly back.
“I only got one because I just loved the shape and the way it went,” says the Milton Keynes mod god of his then boggo VTS purchase.
That was 2008, and it wasn’t the best start for Michael on the road to killer ride status… “I bought the car when I was 18, but got it home and realised I just couldn’t insure it until I was 21,” he says. “I was gutted, but I didn’t want to sell, so I garaged it for a few years.”
