If Brad and I share one car,  which is correct?

     Brad and my car is in the garage.  OR  

     Brad’s and my car is in the garage.

I know "Brad and Sally's car is in the garage" is correct -- when they share one car. But not sure when the second part of the compound possessive is a pronoun.

 

If Brad and I each have a different car — two cars, is the following correct?

     "Brad’s and my cars are in the garage."  -

    Brad's and my car are  in the garage is wrong, it is because in this sentence you do not have something together.
