Goodguys event rolls into Indy



Brownsburg resident Ron Christ has been attending Goodguys for more than 20 years. This year he's registered with his 1953 Ford F100.

“I restored all of it myself with the exception of the paint,” Christ said. 

The truck is painted blue and champaign.

“The champaign color has what they call pearl in it,” he said. “It really sparkles in the sun.”

Christ has lived in Brownsburg for nearly 40 years and before that lived between Avon and Danville.

“I’ve been around Hendricks County a lot of years,” he said. “I really enjoy coming to Goodguys because you have so much fun talking to the people. You get to meet people from all over the Midwest and see their different concepts for their hot rods.”

In the past, he has shown a 1932 Ford, ’28 Ford, ’72 Chevelle, and ’70 Corvette.

“My wife will only let me keep one at a time,” Christ said. “So I have to be willing to part with the one I have before I can start to work on a new one.”

Included in the Goodguys event at IMS is the Show & Shine, which is for 1972 and older vehicles. It's an opportunity to display vehicles for spectators and fellow hot rod enthusiasts.

“We also have the vendors, arts and crafts, model car show, and the Goodguys AutoCross,” Bennett said. “That’s all the noise you're hearing. It gets really loud. The spectators love it.”

The Goodguys AutoCross is the opportunity for registered participants to put their street rod, truck, or street machine through the paces. Participants get a chance to test their driving skills and see how the car handles in a performance situation.

Goodguys continues today and Sunday. It will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 21 and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 22. All activities are at IMS.
