MOTOBLOC was a French automobile manufacturer building cars from 1902 to 1931 in Bordeaux / South of France. The name is for an innovative engine design that combined engine, clutch and gearbox in a single main casing. MOTOBLOC  had a local importance only.
On all emblems you see the crescent moons: the symbole of Bordeaux also known as The Port de la Lune
because of the location on a crescent-shaped bend in the Garonne River.
