One of the quite unknown Czech  car builders was the WIKOV ( named after the two founders Wichterle & Kovarok ).
It was a short lived company the built cars and trucks from 1929 to 1939. Before the beginning of WW II the car production ended for ever. Around 800 cars were built.

The car radiator emblem is showing a man with a hammer. But I can´t give you any explanation about the origin of these symbols as it is not the weapon of the town Prostejov where the cars were built. May be you can help ?
