Roger Barr returning to work!
Discovery Channel’s one-of-a-kind master mechanic, Roger Barr will be back to his work. The 82-year-old has shared the big news on Facebook. Roger’s health condition is frequently updated on his Facebook page, and his more recent post has nothing but all good to say.
He is recovering from the knee surgery, which he underwent on October 1. As of now, he intends to get better for surgery on another knee. His recent posts suggest that he will be back to work next week as he got a ‘go’ from the doctor last week. The statement reads,
“I will be back to work next week.... lots of check ups with the doc and pt people have given me the green flag to start work again. no creepers...no crawling under dashboards... Thanks for all of your help with cheering me on and I do not know what I would have done without the go fund me to help with just paying regular bills not only the hospital charges... you guys ROCK! Thank you Thank you all.”
Roger met with an accident while working at F40 Motorsports, which led him to the hospital bed for the second time.Prior to that, he was hospitalized due to infections on the leg back in August 2017. However, he recovered and resumed his work sometime later in November. The rumor of his death started swirling after he went MIA on social media, and his sudden disappearance on the show. With Roger back in action, we might expect him in the next season of Chasing Classic Cars, alongside his childhood friend, Wayne Carini. The last episode of Chasing Classic Cars aired on July 31, 2018.
