Question: The paper bag full of cash from the failed doughnut shop heist - Buck takes it and it's implied he funds his stereo business with it, but would that bag really hold enough cash for what he had planned, even considering money went further back then?

Answer: No - it is implied he put the money into his bank account, qualifying him for a loan. In the time the film is set, that is certainly possible.
