After Coffee Cakes is brought to the bathroom, in one of the next shots you can still see that Coffee Cake's body from the waist down is still visible. In the left of the frame is his body and to the right is the brick wall. The clothing that Coffee Cakes is wearing gives it away that it is him.

Anachronisms 

The Beatles' "Come Together" is playing in Sonny's bar just before and during the "biker" scene. This song would not have been available on a jukebox, radio or anywhere else in 1968. It was not recorded until July 1969, and was not released until the fall of 1969.

The red and black destination signs shown on the GM old-look busses during the 1960 scenes weren't used until the late-'70s. The early signs were simply black and white.

Factual errors 

C's voice over at the start of the Aqueduct racing scene states that the Yankees were in last place in 1968. The Yankees were actually in 5th place out of the 10 American League teams of that year. It wasn't until the following year that the AL split into divisions.

At the beginning of the movie during the opening credits, there is a shot of the front of the bus. Behind the bus, there is a silver car that is clearly not from the 50's era. Possibly a late 80's or early 90's car.
