It is possible that the trustee is paying the most money to BoA with the intention of allowing you to keep the home.
It is also possible that the car loan was "crammed-down". This mean the unsecured portion would be discharged. The unsecured portion is the amount of the car loan that is more than the current value of the loan.
If you are not happy with the way the money is being distributed, your attorney can change the payment arrangements.
