It’s difficult to say who developed the first electric car that charges it’s own batteries by coasting down a hill and having the motor become a generator.
One thing is for sure, in the 1950’s, Bob Sewell, of Spokane, Washington, retrofit a 1947 Crosley Station Wagon with an aircraft starter motor that exactly accomplishes these regenerative methods and he did it as an Electrical Engineering student at the University of Idaho.
It made national news and was even featured in a full page story in the November 1957 issue of Popular Mechanics. See it here: November 1957 Popular Mechanics
In a popular article about electric cars back in 1960, which was published in the Saturday Evening Post, Bob Sewell is even mentioned in the same paragraph as the legend Charles Proteus Steinmetz. Apparently, Steinmetz had worked out the regenerative electric car back in 1913.
“As the subject heats up, ideas keep popping out: Why not put electric chargers on parking meters, an extra dime giving a parked car ten miles of recharge while it waits? Why not design the motor to become a generator going downgrade, recharging the battery and helping to brake the car? Charles P. Steinmetz, the electrical wizard, had that worked out in 1913. Robert Sewell, an engineering student at the University of Idaho last year, now with Washington Water Power, has applied this idea to an electrified Crosley station wagon.”
Bob recently passed away so there is a lot we’ll never get to share with each other in regards to some fun and exciting electrical experiments. He definitely had a sparkle in his eye when I told him about some of the work of Eric Dollard, Jim Murray and others we’re involved with. Whenever Eric Dollard stayed at my home, he parks his car in perfect view for Bob to see all the antennas on it – something Bob could appreciate as a Ham Radio operator. Bob Sewell was my neighbor.
I’ll always remember him waving at me every time he drove by my house in his little maroon PT Cruiser, literally driving about 2 miles per hour. Happy travels Bob!
The way the circuit is wired reminds of of Leedskalnin’s “Perpetual Motion Holder” and a basic search online shows that a few people have tinkered with Cook’s idea – will anyone ever figure out what he did if it ever worked to begin with? We don’t know anytime it is claimed that an electric circuit can be turned on and continue to power a load without more input, then it at least deserves a second look.
Cook was also obsessed with making a ship that he claimed would fly into the sky at high speed and without a normal power source.

It has been public knowledge for a long time that the U.S. government has suppressed thousands of patents over many years.
What is not widely known is that there is a secret system to delay and withhold the approval of patents. This system is known as the Sensitive Application Warning System (SAWS). This has been known since March 2006.
Recently, there has been a new 50 page document released that actually shows the full range and reach of this system and it is shocking!
Earlier this year, Adam Abraham, a researcher, videographer and advocate for natural and safe healing modalities, green energy solutions and other related topics, came to Spokane for business relating to his water research.
We had already connected in the past so this was a great opportunity to introduce him to a lot of the movers and shakers in the local area who are known in the “free energy” world. He met with John Bedini, Peter Lindemann, Paul Babcock and even stopped by to visit Eric Dollard on his way back down to Arizona.
Here are two videos that he posted on YouTube and there are more to come. The first is an interview with Peter Lindemann on what is Free Energy and the second is a brief overview of what we do at Tesla Chargers. Please give Adam’s videos a thumbs up to show your support and share this post with your friends!
