Whethr or not you would be eligible would be the decision of the lender. Many lenders consider a person who has discharged a total liquidation bankruptcy and is gainfully employed as a good credit risk, as it is assumed the person has no outstanding debts.

If you are filing for bankruptcy, and you try to cosign -- two things can happen. 1. the lender will turn you down. 2. If the court finds out you have applied for credit the bankruptcy can be stopped. If you mean that the car and loan will be for you during or after the bankruptcy, this still has to be disclosed and again the bankruptcy can be stopped.
