Quick, name the game pieces in Monopoly. There's the racecar, the battle ship... then maybe an oil derrick... Anyway, just like Disney announcing that this is your last chance ever to buy The Emperor's New Groove on Blu Ray, Hasbro has announced that one of the game pieces from Monopoly will...actually if you look at the Monopoly Facebook page, it looks like each of the current game-pieces have been charged with a crime, and maybe are going to prison.

Nissan has announced that its Detroit auto show booth will have its own funky fragrance. According to their press release, which is pretty hilarious by the way, they're hoping that spraying the booth with a "distinctive fragrance" will create a "complete experience for visitors."

Maybe we'll get some driving gloves that make the Lexus sign when you do this.

Anyway, that's the news. We'll be back here tomorrow with more, but until then, check out our related videos on autoweek.com and Youtube. As always, enjoy the drive.
