Ok, then legally you are both equal owners, regardless of who actually made the payments. Now if you were to file a lawsuit for "partition" it is likely that the judge would award you the vehicles if you can show proof that you paid for both vehicles entirely by yourself.

But as it stands right now, you are both co-owners of the vehicle.
