If you love old school, I mean real old school styling, with modern tech, then you will fall in love with the Morgan EV3 ($41,000). The EV3 is built on the brand's three wheel platform and utilizes an emission free all-electric design. The power plant includes a 20kWh lithium Battery and a liquid cooled 46kW motor. Because the EV3 only weighs about 1100 lbs that setup enables it to drive about 150 miles on a full charge.As far as performance I would put the EV3 in the weekend touring car category. It has a 0-62 mph split time of under 9 seconds and a top speed of about 90 mph. Like I said, it's a nice car for hitting the country on a beautiful fall day, but not up to being considered a serious performance car.[gallery type="rectangular" ids="22607,22606,22605,22604,22603"]

The Summer of Beer and Whiskey ($20) is about Chris von der Ahe who knew so little about baseball it could be written on a postage stamp, yet his risked his life savings in order to found a franchise that would grow into the St Louis Cardinals. Despite this, the German born proprietor of a beer garden became one of the funniest and most important figures in the history of the game. Von der Ahe bought the team for one reason only; in order to sell more beer. He then played a part in gathering together a bunch of ragtag professional clubs in order to create a new, maverick league to mount a challenge to the haughty National League, this reinventing big league baseball that would appeal to and attract all classes of Americans. Then he helped gather a group of ragtag professional clubs together to create a maverick new league that would fight the haughty National League, reinventing big-league baseball to attract Americans of all classes. Sneered at as "The Beer and Whiskey Circuit" because it was backed by brewers, distillers, and saloon owners, their American Association brought Americans back to enjoying baseball by offering Sunday games, beer at the ballpark, and a dirt-cheap ticket price of 25 cents.
