Absolutely anyone that can qualify for credit can cosign a loan for anyone. But be careful, as the person cosigning takes full responsibility for seeing the loan is payed and will be the one sued for failure to pay (not the person they cosigned for) should the lender decide it is necessary to sue (e.g. the car was destroyed while uninsured and thus cannot be repossessed and no insurance settlement will be made).

What to do if being sued for unpaid car loan in Texas but you don't have car?

It does not matter if you don't have the car any more. What matters is the unpaid loan you took out on it when you bought it. It is because of the loan, not the car, that you are being sued. You can try re-negotiating with the car dealership and with the financial company. If that fails, you can try to hire a lawyer to protect your interests.
