Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer.
Yes, if the car qualifies under your state or bankruptcy law exemptions. The Bankruptcy Code (11 USC 522 (d)(2) ) exempts the "debtor's interest, not to exceed $2,400 in value, in one motor vehicle."
You get to choose which exemptions to apply: the state exemptions or the bankruptcy exemptions of Section 522. State exemptions vary from state to state.
