# Did they? Why? IDGI.
There exists a car called the Ford Prefect. The galaxy featured in HHGTTG is the Milky Way. The hitch hiker pictured is clearly already in the Milky Way. That's a telegraph pole, not a lamppost.

# OH right
because she's a hitch hiker and that's her guide to the galaxy.

That's really clever, well done.

# Not so clever
She's clearly on the wrong side of the road, so despite her loveliness will find getting a lift a challenge.

# From examination of the telegraph pole
And the yellow lines in the road, I'd say she is in a country where she is not hampered by your supposition.

# Or even universe.
From the size of the book, we can deduce she is a mere 3' tall. At most.

the model of car in the title of the book is British.
it's a right conundrum and no mistake.

# She may be an inexperienced traveller in a foreign land.
And that was her choice of book to read.

# what is going on with her pinky? Has she flattened the other fingers against her palm rather than curving them inwards?

# I feel like everyone is concentrating on the minutiae.
Instead of just saying its a shite p/shop.

# Not shite at all
the principal joke is excellent, and normal people will find it chuckle-worthy at least. the graphics are clear, and you have chosen an attractive young woman as the chief protagonist. the additional Ford reference is a bonus, and only a jaded pedant would seek to find fault in your skill and wit.
don't be too hard on yourself, your work is well above average for this site.
