    their cars and mine

    1-Their cars and mine are in good condition.
    2-Mine and their cars are in good condition.

    Are both of these sentences correct? Can they both be used when I have only one car and also when I have more than one car?

    If you said 1, I think your audience would assume you had only one car, unless you specified 'and both mine'/'and all of mine'/ 'and n of mine'. 2, as amended, lets you specify whether you have one or more car(s).
