The typical ute muster sees few customised in hot pink.

But for Karen McCann and her 1996 Toyota Hilux 'Little Wildflower', there can never be too much pink.

Winning the 2014 Chick Ute category it gives her the chance to compete in the Brisbane Ekka.

"A little more pink here and there - it's a work in progress," Ms McCann pointed out.

The fact that she was the only entrant in this category may have had something to do with it too.

"I'm the only chick here, so I'm in, I'll be heading to the Ekka."

Little Wildflower, decked out with pink detailing inside and outside, from its lights to steering wheel, has won a lot of placements at ute musters across the state.

"We've been getting a lot of placements," she said.

Coming from Crest Mead, South Brisbane, Ms McCann has travelled all over Queensland, showing off her Little Wildflower at country shows.

"We've put a few (kilometres) on with all these trips."

This year so far, she has ventured to Stanthorpe, Toowoomba, Marburg, Nanango, Maleny and Proston.

"I just love getting away for the weekend."
