There are green 'Magic trees' in every car in this film (and on a motorbike at the beginning) - the smelly tree company was one of the film's only sponsors.

Jimmy Buffett is in Repo Man, his hits in the 70s include "Margaritaville" and "Come Monday". He is one of the guys in the "Silver Suits", and is shown in one of the only scenes where they do not have their helmets on.
Thanks to Craig
Kevin is driving the Chevy Mailbu when Bud and Otto are cut off by it on the freeway. The destination sign on the bus that Otto exits from when he goes to visit his parents states, "Edge City", which is the name of the studio that produced the film.

Miller talks about cosmic consciousness and refers to a "shrimp" or "plate of shrimp" - later on in the film, there is a sign in a window that is advertising a "plate of shrimp".
Thanks to Atom / Robertico
Otto's full name is Otto Mattock (visible on the FBI dossier screen in the mobile command center.)

When Otto goes to the club to meet the U.F.O. ladies, he says, "I can't believe I used to like these guys." The performing band is the Circle Jerks. Zander Schloss, the actor who plays Otto's friend, Kevin, went on to join the Circle Jerks after the film. He replaced original bass player Roger Rogerson in 1983.
That is an uncredited director/scriptwriter Alex Cox as the carwash attendant.

Notice the white dress shirts the punks, including Otto, are wearing in the house party scene during the beginning of the film. Also notice the skeletons and skulls drawn on them. These are shirts actually depicted on the cover of Suicidal Tendencies' first LP. Next time you watch that scene in the movie compare the drawings on the shirts shown on the LP with those worn by the actors in the movie. Many are identical.

Repo Man webmaster Trent Reeve adds the following: Not only is that a Suicidal Tendencies style shirt Otto has wrapped around his waiste but the bass player for Los Angeles punk band No Mercy was hired to create it. He was given $50 for his effort and most recently asked me to provide him with a still shot of that scene for use on his myspace page.
Thanks to Mack The Knife
When Otto is accosted by the rest of the team and forced to admit who beat him up, instead of telling them it was the band at the house, he sends them to his ex-boss, from the market. This also turns out to be Kevin's dad. You can just barely see Kevin in the background, in the living room. Both are beaten senseless, of course. So much for friendship, eh?
Thanks to Jeff House
I wonder if the license plate on the Malibu is referring to the UK punk band G.B.H.?

Bogus Trivia

There's often fake stuff floating round, y'know? -Like the 'ghost boy' that can allegedly be seen in "Three Men And A Baby".

But, nothing bogus that we know yet for "Repo Man".
