I'm planning on driving the 79 most of the winter, that is AFTER it gets a
new paint job in January. The 67 will probably stay garaged most of the
winter on the trickle charger. If we do have a nice day here and there,
I'll probably get it out to blow out the "cobs" unless there is salt or mud
on the road. We live 4 miles off the blacktop on a gravel road and I washed
the underneath of the 67 off real well before putting it in the garage. So
unless we have days when the gravel road is mud free, it will sit most of
the winter. Also the heater in the 79 works as well as expected but the one
in the 67 isn't working at all.
BTW, thanks to all that responded to this thread. I'll take the tarp off
the top of the 67 and put it on the floor underneath.

Monte, don't tell me you're not planning on driving it this winter!  I
solved my winter storage problems by NOT putting the '76 B in winter
storage. Basically, I make sure the tank stays above 1/2 full, disconnect
the battery, and drive it any day I can... As long as the roads aren't
wet, I'll take it out - hood down, of course... Are Missouri winters worse
than NJ winters?
