Quote bumblevee
I think that it should be 'This is Jenny's and my car.' We were always taught that out of respect, you put the other person ahead of yourself.
But i think that refers to when you are the subject of the sentence. For example "Bob and I are going to the store" (Bob and I) is the subject. but does that "respect" rule still apply if you are the object of the sentence?
