, Barton Goth GCO Bankruptcy Trustees said:

As long as you sold the snowmachine prior to filing bankruptcy all that will happen is that the shortfall on the loan (i.e. the difference between what you sold it for and what you owe, plus any penalties and interest) will be an unsecured creditor that will be listed on your bankruptcy documents and you will be cleared from.

If you have done this after you filed a bankruptcy then you will be responsible for the shortfall.
