Trivia

The first Coyote was built from a Manta Montage kit car. The second, used later in the series, was built from a DeLorean DMC-12. Reportedly the car was changed because the two men had a hard time getting in and out of, as well as sitting in, the kit car. See more »

Goofs

In the start credits, when the Coyote jumps over and hits the roof of another car, the back right wheel has broken and sitting almost at right angles. When it lands it is fine again. See more »
