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.

It would have been better to discuss this with a bankruptcy lawyer before passing the property, as you might have been able to exempt the property in the filing.
