Elad Shraga was born in Israel and has been fascinated with all things mechanical since he was a child. While his career is in finance, his passion is cars and he began collecting at the age of 17, starting with motorcycles and then cars. His true love is light, small package Italian cars and in particular, the OSCA. He is bringing to the Pebble Beach Concours two of his OSCAs; a 1949 OSCA MT4 Siluro (Cigar), the second OSCA ever made, and the only Cigar body left in the world. The other is a 1952 MT4, a unique inside-grill headlight model with extensive West coast racing history. Both of these cars are featured on this year's Pebble Beach Retro-Auto poster this year. Elad is a fan of touring, including the Mille Miglia, Colorado Grand, the Leggenda di Bassano and of course, the Holyland 1000. With his partner, Amir Almagor, they were instrumental in putting on the Holyland 1000 Rally, and it is their way to give back to the hobby in a unique and diverse setting, which included 80 cars from 12 countries.
Cars Yeah guest and Chairman of the Pebble Beach Concours, Sandra Button, and her husband Martin, recently participated in the Holyland 1000 and drove one of Elad’s OSCAs on their incredible journey.
