The semantics escape me but this is a popular one:
Good reddens this criminal is arrested, let’s hope they all follow!
Say goodbye and good reddens to wasting gasoline or petrol.
Good reddens. She was an over paid slug. Nobody liked her
Good Bye and Good reddens. I just hope you fold up and go away sooner than later.
Any ideas? “Good blushes” ?
Even more inexplicable:
Good radiance, jail the classless trash.
Well if he does, good radiance!
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. GOOD RADIANCE TO BAD RUBBISH
Good radiance to Mother Russia

It sits on the Opel Omega platform, which is the same as the Cadillac Catera: aka the CTS (god riddens to that vehicle). .
My mother, from northern Ohio, used to say “get red of …” and “to red up the dishes”, so “good reddance” would sound right to her.
Yikes, I went to all the trouble of writing this up before checking in the catacombs. Bad strategy. I can’t bear to throw these further examples away, so here they are, along with the slightly tortured justification. And the acorn, riddance.
Good writtens. You’ve been written out of the scene. Goodbye, that’s all she wrote. Good writtens might be a reference to the closing of a chapter. It might come most naturally in those dialects (that I seem to hear more and more frequently) where d is pronounced as I would a t. There appear to be more than a hundred hits.
Our old friend, Parker has left our team:( but good writtens to him
