That's pretty crazy decor, alright. Also, I don't think you need to worry THAT much about vandalism. People will usually just go "Wow, check that out that's neat" or "Wow, that's freaking weird/ugly" and be on their way. As for vandals, well, they don't usually give a flying crap WHAT they vandalize, they just want to vandalize it.
Storytime; My dad used to have a beautiful restored 70's Buick, and he spent thousands on a custom paint job that was a showroom-quality sparkling red that he waxed constantly (had some fantastical name like "Maple fire autumn mist" or whatnot). It was a beautiful car but not any flashier than any other nice car. ...know what happened to it? The paint job got keyed by a bunch of stupid kids while it sat in the driveway. And then they keyed the car right alongside it- my Mom's plain brown ugly-as-shit malibu (this was the early 90's and she had one of the much uglier later models, so it was no classic car type at that time). They just wanted to wreck the cars up, who cared how nice they were. It happened at night so they probably couldn't even see how nice the Buick was.
And on the flip side, Dad has a total beater of a car right now, an ancient toyota corolla from 1981. It's HIDEOUS (it's nickname is the Millenium Falcon if you need an idea), its grey paint is coming off in chunks, it's barely in running condition and I don't know why he still owns it because it's no longer worth constantly fixing. And guess what? It too, got broken into and vandalized once (also, he doesn't live in a good neighborhood, if that much were obvious. But when the Buick was keyed? It was in white picket fence suburbia). No aesthetics whatsoever to WANT to ugly up on an already-ugly car, and well, apparently they didn't care anyway. And yet the shiny new car his neighbour had a few feet away, was left alone.
So just use a car alarm of some kind, or even a fake car alarm if you can't/won't use a real one (stick a slow-blinking blue or red LED light near your rear view mirror and an alarm company sticker in a window, that'll fool most people), don't take your car out to really unsavoury places if you need to leave it unattended, there's 90% of the possibility gone. And if it DOES get damaged, it probably ISN'T because it looked more distinctive than all the other cars, it's because stupid dumbasses like to wreck shit and they don't care what.
