Got the hots for hot-rods and low-riders? Then you may want to put the Peoria Fire Department's "Fire It Up" car show on your list for next weekend.
Vehicle enthusiast and firefighter Mark Barbee hosts the event this Sunday, April 19, at the Peoria Sports Complex (see press release below). The show comes up a couple times a year to raise money for the Peoria Firefighter's Charities, a group that has it's heart in the right spot (even if it's apostrophe isn't).
We convinced Barbee to send these shots from the last show:
