An obligation to pay spousal support is not extinguished with bankruptcy. This debt will survive his bankruptcy and he must keep paying it. Assuming the lender for the car loan holds the car as collateral for the loan, then this debt must continue to be paid if you wish to keep the car. I would expect that you may be able to contact the lender and make arrangements to continue the payments. As long as the loan is not in default, the lender can not seize the car simply because of the bankruptcy.
