The dangerous storm brought with it damaging winds, giant hailstones and torrential rain that ravaged Sydney for several hours before moving through New South Wales.
The footage showed the Toyota Supra in an outside parking lot covered with brown cardboard boxes placed on the hood, windshield and roof of the vehicle.
The concerned motorist had also placed a black cloth over the rear window that was held in place by another large box.
