The police officer at the airport is carrying a tonfa instead of a billy club. These were not in use at that time and weren't introduced to most police forces until the 1980s.

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

As the hearse pulls away from the Joshua Tree Inn, Barbara comes out of the room and runs to her car; she gets in and closes the door; you see her lean to the right and reach with her right hand to turn the key in the ignition, after which she leans left and turns on the headlights with her left hand, as her right hand moves the column shift into drive; THEN you hear the sound of the car engine starting.

When they are taking off after hitting the cop's motorcycle, you can see the motorcycle cop throw his arms up in frustration through the back window of the car from a distance. Magically the cop's motorcycle is no longer there.
