How to get title to a vehicle is a matter of state law on certificates of motor vehicle title, not federal bankruptcy law. However, here's what I would do: Send the company a letter by registered mail, telling them they have 30 days to remove the car. If they fail to retrieve it, then file with the state titling agency to get a title as an abandoned vehicle.

You would have to reopen the bankruptcy case, file a motion to redeem it for $1.00, and as a part of the order on that motion - get the clerk of the court to sign the title over to you. Not easy, but it can be done.

You can reopen the bankruptcy and file a motion to redeem the car. The judge will set a value and if you pay off the value, they are required to send you the title. I sometimes see creditors who never bothered to get the car pop up and fight over the value.
