What Happened to Roger from 'Chasing Classic Cars'?


What happened to Roger Barr from Chasing Classic Cars? It's a question that many fans of the show had when they noticed that the motor vehicle maven was no longer appearing on the program.

To say that Roger's got motoring in his blood would be an understatement: the man and his pal, Wayne Carini, have been longtime friends and co-workers who share a common love for cars.

Roger was a mechanic for the United States Air Force and honed a lot of his skills while stationed in Germany. He was such a talented driver that when he wasn't serving in the military for his country, he was driving for the Porsche factory sports car team as a backup motorist.

When he returned back to the states, he opened a garage in his hometown of Glastonbury, Connecticut, where he specialized in repairing foreign cars, although he famously had a sign hung up in his shop that read, "No French cars allowed." So not all foreign cars were welcome.
