Salt spray is your real enemy. Put wire mesh over the exhaust and close the heat vents. Do NOT use warfarin (rat poison) - if it doesn't kill your kids, dog, or cat, the mice will die INSIDE the car. Not a good thing.
If you dont use a trickle charger, then put the battery on a block of wood and charge it up every month or two.
Some put the car up on jack stands to prevent tire flat spotting, but this can expose the rods for the shocks.

You will be way ahead if you don't put the car up. Instead, every 2 weeks you should drive it until the temp guage is normal and then drive it 1/2 hour more. In our climate there is no need to store the car, and it will be a lot happier if it is exercised (ie if the seals and fluids are re-lubricated by a flow of oil).
