Many years ago I bought some drip pans from Pep Boys.  They were 
approximately 2.5' x 4' and cost something like $10.  The did just the 
trick until I was able to solve the drip problems in my convertible.  
They also were a godsend when my Corsa had transmission problems (broken 
input shaft) and it dripped fluids for awhile.

This is similar to what I purchased, except mine are metal:

1965 Monza Convertible, 110/4, Clarks finned pan, no drips
1966 Corsa Coupe, 140/4, Clarks pan, still drips from all the 
transmission-related fluids that got everywhere
