Suggested correction: The vehicle is never pink. It's always the same white vehicle. Maybe the light and shadows makes it look pink to you, but it's white.

It's never pink, but it isn't the light and shadows. It's the blue screen effect.

Continuity mistake: After Lone Star and Barf drop the giant hair dryer, they lift up the empty case. In the "Instant video Cassette" of the movie, Lone Star and Barf are lifting the case, but the hair dryer is missing.

Suggested correction: It's not the same scene. Notice that in the scene where they drop it, it's relatively flat where they are walking. In the instant cassette scene, they are walking down a hill.

They were by a hill, but the angle didn't allow the camera to see it.
