ATTICA, Ind. (WLFI) – A Fountain County man is enjoying a smooth ride after his friends restored his pickup truck.

Lifelong Fountain County resident Howard Snider’s 1996 Dodge pickup was looking a little rusty. His friends at the Crossroads restaurant in Attica noticed and decided to do something about it.

One of his friends asked to borrow it for a few days and Snider said yes. A local mechanics shop got to work and about two weeks later they surprised him with a totally redone body.

Snider’s friend Ira Wilson said this deed is just payback for Snider’s kindness over the years.

“He’s just a friend. He’d help anybody. He’d do anything for anybody. If you need something, the man would give you the shirt off his back,” said Wilson.

“Great surprise. It’s wonderful — wonderful. I didn’t realize I had so many friends that I have. Some of them lie a little to you,” said Snider.

Snider said he can’t believe how good his truck looks now. He also owns van, but he says his pickup has a much smoother ride. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
