How about some 6mil plastic sheeting and a frame of PVC pipe or 
conduit?  Two pipes will run the length of the vehicle, resting on the 
platform inside the tires, and two shorter lengths can be attached to 
T's as spreaders.  Change the length of the spreaders based on vehicle 
width.  Thinking something like this (imagine there is no line spacing):

You could get fancy and put a couple hooks on the inside of the 
platforms and set the pipe in them.

You could make the plastic a little wider at one end so there is slope 
for any drippings to drain off.  When not in use, just roll it up.

Should you bump it while working on one of the cars, no danger of it 
scratching the bottom car with PVC either.

Brian, wishing a lift of any sort was a possibility.
