Anderson summer car show a treat

'Goodstock' draws about 500 for food, music and cars

ANDERSON, Ind. — More than a hundred show cars gleamed in the hot summer sun as classic pop music played in the background.

The number of car entries in the sixth annual Good’s Candy Shop Car Show & Live Music doubled this year from last year’s show, according to Randy Good. The event, called Goodstock, was Saturday at Good’s Candy Shop, 1423 W. 53rd St.

Based on the number of sales transactions, Good said, as many as 500 people attended. Good is the owner of Good's Candy Shop.

Michael Quinton of Pendleton brought his stepson to this year’s event.

“It is almost like the music helps with the nostalgia,” Quinton said. “The cars remind you of the music, and the music reminds you of the cars.”

His stepson, Kooper Julius, agreed.

“They are awesome,” he said, noting that he was particularly fond of the Volkswagens, including a microbus featured at one end of the grassy field.

“The music started out more soulful and sounded like the '60s, if that makes sense. Now it sounds like the '70s. It’s a nice spectrum.”

Four bands rocked the stage, playing popular classic hits as people strolled among the cars on display, stopping to admire each or to take photos of their favorites.

Near the stage, small stands sold barbeque sandwiches, chips, shakeups and soda. Many opted for icy treats on the warm summer day.

Douglas Gibbs of Lapel entered his 1929 Model A pickup in the event. He stood near a bright yellow car as he ate a double scoop of chocolate ice cream in a waffle cone.

“This is about the best ice cream there is around,” Gibbs said.

In the back row of vehicles, Lisa Phillips-Cannon of Anderson stopped to admire a shiny black car.

“Every year it gets bigger and better,” she said of Goodstock. “I really like the types of bands he has this year. There is something for everyone. I also like that they advertized what was playing so you could pick when to come based on the type of music you like.”
