This outstanding 1929 Ford Pickup belongs to Scott and Kay Hicks of Ponca City. The truck was
originally purchased by Ponca Floral for use by the business. Then in 1990 Dan
Hicks (Scott’s dad) purchased the truck in its original condition. Kay still says,
"There is something about a pickup man!" Scott just smiles!
Dan took the old Ford to J D Harks of Ponca City in 1993 to do a complete
restoration. The color choice selected by Dan, which was a color Ford used on

Scott said, “No you’re not. I am buying it.” The love affair still continues today between
the 29 and the Hicks' Family.
Scott and Kay's love for the old Ford is as strong as ever. During 2009 they have enjoyed showing the truck in fifteen shows from Arkansas City, Kansas to Muskogee,
Oklahoma. Scott says, “Every vehicle has to have a name and we have named this outstanding 1929 Ford Pickup ‘Great
The Cimarron Starlite Cruisers sincerely thank Scott
