This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Raoul suggests they get some Priest's robes for the trip. Dr. Gonzo doesn't think it's a good idea. It isn't mentioned.
   Raoul has the notion to sign the Red Shark over to the Okie hitchhiker and fly to Miami and keep going. But he has plans for the car. He would like to do some drag racing on the strip. This isn't talked about.
   Dr. Gonzo pulls over and is having an attack. Raoul says "We can't stop here! This is bat country!" Raoul just asks what is wrong.
   When the Hitchhiker jumps out of the back of the convertible the music is playing loudly and it is difficult to hear. There is no music playing.
   Dr. Gonzo tells the kid that he is going to kill Savage Henry. He then cracks another amyl under his nose and says it is good medicine. As he talks about Savage Henry, Dr. Gonzo pulls a .357 Magnum out of a brown paper bag and pulls the trigger.
