In the ending sequence after the VW bus takes a right turn to set off to the open road, a modern sleek looking 1990s era Chevy Astro van is seen approaching in the opposing lane. The usual method taken by the production for open street scenes was to use a short lens to place out of time vehicles out of focus from being recognized.

The little green "Cosmic Cutie" from "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" wouldn't have been painted on the side of the Dead Head van as early as 1980 or 1981 when the show takes place. The original novel was published in 1979 without the famous icon on the cover, which was introduced in a later cover version.
