Newbie to home security, looking for simple options to observe car in open parking area.

Hello! I’m looking for advice on options to simply observe my car in an assigned parking space in front of my town home. Interested in catching random neighborhood kids, drunken neighbors, etc. Any identification of damage to my property for the sake of insurance claims or landlord discussions. I bought a new car 3 days ago and already have a chip in my windshield that spawned suddenly overnight.

I was thinking a simple camera setup that can look out my window on the first or second floor, angled to watch my car would be enough. What options exist? Is 24/7 observation possible, should I look for motion sensing, where and how much data will need to be stored? Power outlets exist near the windows I’m looking at, but my computer is too far away if that’s what’s needed for storage.
