If the car is gone, the car is gone. The car would only be covered in BK if you still had it.

If you file Chapter 13 bankruptcy within 10 days of your car being repossessed, or in some states before it has been sold or auctioned, your creditor must return the vehicle to you.

No. A bankruptcy becomes a public record as soon as it is filed. Its the same as any other type of lawsuit. Even if they are dismissed, they will still show up when searching for your name. The fact that a bankruptcy was not completed does not negate the fact that it was filed.
