If there is a loan for the vehicle it must be paid off before the lender will release the title. The bankruptcy exemption status does not confer ownership of the vehicle to the BK petitioner unless the vehicle was already owned free and clear. It simply indicates that the car was not subject to BK procedure.

Yes you can sale your home but the bankruptcy court will take the proceeds from the sale and disburse them to your creditors that you owe.
