Bob Heroux is determined to race The Scat Rat again. 

Pieces of his 1968 Oldsmobile Cutlass race car have been recovered after it was stolen from his autobody shop just over a week ago

​Heroux offered a $10,000 reward for the safe return of the car that's been in his family for 35 years. 

After a tip came in, he ended up in a field outside Saskatoon picking up the pieces of his beloved hot rod. It was stripped for parts and the new engine, worth $20,000, was gone. 

 But that won't stop him. He plans to rebuild the car using the recovered parts and already has people offering to help out. 

"People from SIR, all my mechanic friends that have worked on The Scat Rat for 30 years, are willing to," he said. "They just said, 'Let's get at it, lets get the Scat Rat on the road.' And the wheels are turning right now. The new car is in process."

RCMP are still investigating the incident.
