HATAZ / GER


The German HATAZ Kleinautofabrik  was a short lived company (1920 to 1925 ).
  Initials stand for Hans Tautenhahn Zwickau. It was a cyclecar without any commercial succes.
 They used Steudel proprietary engines. 
There is one car left in a German Museum.

My emblem is slightly curved so probably it is from one of the last HATAZ vehicles when the radiator was nearly flat as you can see on the next photo:
