SKETCHY'S SPEED AND SURF
Street Trucks|December 2020
An Attention-Demanding Vintage Cruiser
KEN MCAVOY

CHARLIE CAMPBELL SPENT MOST OF HIS LIFE BUILDING DREAMS. During the day, his construction company built custom homes for other people. In his spare time, he constructed his own automotive dreams. Naturally he hoped his son would follow in his footsteps.

Stacy Campbell didn’t initially share the same visions as his dad. Growing up around the jobsites, drag strip and car shows, he didn’t always appreciate his dad’s business or his passion for classic American cars. Stacy’s interests leaned more toward skateboards, BMX bikes and Volkswagens.

The young man matured and began to understand what compelled his dad to teach him every aspect of the construction business. Stacy also learned to appreciate his style of automotive passion. As a tribute to his father, he hoped to pass this legacy on to the next generation of the Campbell family. The fact that he had been blessed with two daughters didn’t deter him in the least bit.

Stacy collaborated with his wife Jackie to formulate a business plan that would allow them to incorporate their leisure time passion for attending classic truck shows. In 2016, Sketchy’s Speed Shop was established so that the entire family could participate in a business venture.

The dynamic duo planned to use the business as an educational experience for their daughters. To assist in that goal, this ’64 Suburban was purchased to become Sketchy’s automotive calling card. They wanted a family-sized vintage cruiser that would draw attention as they attended events around the country.
