My drive is underneath two large oak trees. In summer, these drop spots on the car.
#In winter, they drop leaves.

What about those shade cloths permanently anchored to a pole or two and typically to a corner of a house or school to form a large triangle for shade. That might be a little less attractive to thieves....??

I would be extremely cautious about anything that's going to be left unattended.

If something comes loose in a strong wind overnight God knows what damage it might do to your car, flapping about ...

Properly made and installed they are very strong indeed. That one in the Cafe above isn't, it should really be three pointed and set so water doesn't accumulate. Looks like a flapper too. But you can get them absolutely stable and long lasting if done correctly. If you know you are going to get a severe storm you can take them down very easily........
