If the iconic Ford Mustang is your dream car, here’s your chance to get your hands on one. You don’t have to clear out space in your garage to store it, and if the Mustang lands you in jail, well, it might not be as bad as it sounds.

In celebration of World Monopoly Day, the Mustang and several other iconic brands will be added as game pieces for a special edition of the popular board game, Monopoly.

The pieces will appear in the Monopoly Empire game, a special edition to celebrate Monopoly’s 81st anniversary.

Hasbro, which owns the line of Monopoly board games, plans to celebrate World Monopoly Day on Saturday, March 19 on social media by collecting images of fans dressing up like Mr. Monopoly, the mustachioed character from the game, and sharing them on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Meanwhile, visitors to several Universal Studios parks can participate in Monopoly-themed events.

“We’re planning the most memorable celebration of the brand yet,” said Jonathan Berkowitz, senior vice president of global marketing for gaming at Hasbro in a statement. “We’ve made it possible for every [Monopoly] fan to join us in the celebration, whether on social media or at one of our live events planned around the world.”
