The History of Smith South Plains
In 1951, Bill H. Smith moved his family to Slaton, Texas and started Slaton Motor Company. Smith had previously worked for Ford, and quickly fell in love with the car business. He had the charisma of a true salesman, and the Slaton Motor Company was a success!
By 1965, Bill's son, Steve Smith, was actively involved in the store. In 1966 the father and son moved from their original downtown location to 1700 W. Division, and renamed the family business "Smith Ford." Our Slaton store remains at this address today.
In 1982, Steve's daughter, Annette began working full time at Smith Ford and in 1989, she became the General Manager. Meanwhile, in the small town of West, Texas, Patrick Sykora was earning his stripes at the family dealership, Sykora Family Ford. In 1997, Annette and Pat were married and became partners in the Slaton dealership.
1999 brought the expansion to two locations, Slaton and Levelland. The name was changed to "Smith South Plains" to reflect our family business which would now serve a large part of the south plains area with more brands than ever from which to choose.
Both locations are open today with full operations in Levelland, and used car sales/service in Slaton. Pat and Annette still take an active role in the business as the owners/operators. The family atmosphere lives on as two of their five children, as well as one son-in-law, have joined the business.
