What gives the car more value than the pen??? Cost of manufacturing. It costs money to keep the lights on in the factory and to run all of the machinery. It costs money to buy fuel to run the machines to mine the raw materials. It costs money to fuel the trucks to ship those materials to the factory. It costs money to obtain the leather to upholster the seats. It costs the farmer money to FEED those cows. It costs the fertilizer company money to produce the fertilizer that is going to fertilize the corn which will feed the cow which will produce the leather seats. It costs money to pay all of the workers........who need that money......to pay their bills for things like their house, their car payment, their electric bill, their food bill etc, all things which cost so much money because of the cost associated with their production and transportation.
Think about that the next time you question whether or not free energy exists and wonder why these greedy parasites who are our slavemasters would want to keep this out of our hands.

I think you underestimate the amount of money that goes to labor. Labor does not cost any energy (well, ok, some). But there are many cases where it determines the price of a service or product. If we had free energy, we could cut cost significantly. But still, nothing would be free, and many stuff would still be expensive.

You see, the problem with "free energy" and water powered cars that last forever, in my mind is this. Why dont that guys parents, instead of going underground, take there sons engine schematics, scan them onto a PC, PDF them then upload them to any number of thousands of torrent website or file hosting servers exactly?]
