It doesn't matter whose name is ***** ***** the loan papers, the judge can award the car to whichever of you he chooses. Based on the facts you gave it is more likely he would award it to you and if there are multiple vehicles he will almost certainly make sure each of you get at least one.
It is possible you could get alimony but if you make more than he does it is unlikely the judge will award it to you.

It is possible. Alimony isn't mandatory in any cases and is fact dependent and to a large degree depends on that specific judge. Some never award it and some award it in most cases.
Alimony is usually awarded when someone is either unemployed or makes less than they did before marriage due to something that occurred during the marriage. For instance, if someone took time away from working to be able to raise the children and now finds that they are behind everyone else their age then a judge would be more likely to award alimony.
A main factor to be considered by the judge is the length of the marriage with the longer someone is married the more likely they are to receive alimony. With you only being married two years that makes it less likely he (or you) would receive alimony in the divorce. Also, the pre-nup may also address this issue and if it does then the judge will almost certainly follow whatever it says.
However, with it being a case where a man makes less and you only being married two years it is very unlikely he would be awarded alimony. While the law doesn't state men can't get alimony there is still an inherent bias against them with most judges although they wouldn't admit it.
