      JP, I also found those episodes. I doubt the Bedford was cheaper to crash than the VW but I'm not an expert (but I wondered how fast a recoverytruck was on the spot....)
      Also found the Van Swieten truck in episode 9 but when I checked the licenseplate when the driver left with truck nr. 140 and when he died in the same 140 that afternoon they mixed up those plates.

      Just watched episode #8, where "Rob" gets the heart attack, episode #9 (last episode??) has the Bedford scene in it... Bedfords must have been cheaper to crash those days....
      As far as i can figure out, all episodes seem to be there.

Also I remember there was an accident in the movie which shows a "standin" Bedford truck instead of the DAF truck, very clumsy.
