There is no time restraint on purchasing anything after bankruptcy. In fact, as it is "after", barring something like intentional fraud by using undeclared resources that were available at the time of bankruptcy, your actions after filing have virtually no effect on or from the bankruptcy. In the pure sense, even if you won the lottery the week after filing bankruptcy, that wouldn't effect the pre-filing situation. Getting financing for the car may be a different matter. A lender will look at you entire credit profile, and they historically frown upon someone with a, especially recent, bankruptcy on record. However, some lenders have special programs for just tis situation, although at a higher interest rate.

How long does it take to get a discharge on bankruptcy?

It depends on which bankruptcy you file for. If you file for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, which includes a liquidation of any assets and paying off your debt once and for all, you'd be looking at a discharge within about 3 months. With Chapter 13 Bankruptcy your attorney would set up a payment plan for you to pay off your debts over a specified amount of time. Normally the payments are scheduled to be completed by the debtor in 3 to 5 years. So the discharge time will vary depending on what is agreed upon in the court. All the required payments must be made before the discharge can occur. I've written about these 2 types of bankruptcy in my blog, where I consider how these processes can affect your tax debt.
