Lexington, Oklahoma - We first introduced you to Johnny and Connie Hoke in July 2011. They contacted Consumer Watch to help them get back what they called their Cowboy Cadillac, a classic truck they inherited from Connie's late father.

They took it to Jason Voth with Resurrection Paint and Body a year ago. After paying him $5000, the work stopped.

Once Consumer Watch got involved, Voth promised he'd complete the truck, but that never happened.

Then Ambitions Auto Salon offered to finish the work for free. Thirty days later, we were there for the touching reveal.

The Hokes were speechless as their eyes filled with tears.

"Look at it!," Johnny Hoke said.

"It just looks brand new," Connie Hoke said.

Wesley Smith and his crew went above and beyond, doing even more to the truck than first promised.

"He just didn't finish painting it," Johnny Hoke said. "He finished the truck."

"It's absolutely beautiful," Connie Hoke said. "My daddy would be so proud of this."

Johnny hopes to have his Cowboy Cadillac back on the road very soon.
