when you park your car, at least one of your valves will be open and that is an invitataion for water, or humid air to come in from your intake, and as you know water and iron will rust,so when putting your car away for the winter, pull the spark plugs fog the cylinders with oil and turn the engine over a couple of times and spray again and put the spark plugs back in, pull off the rocker covers and loosen the rocker arms so the valves are closed and you should be ok in the spring

You need to overhaul the engine. Your first mission is troubleshooting: did the engine seize because the pistons seized, or because the main bearings seized? To do so, pull the heads and try to remove the cylinders. If they won't come off, piston seize. If they will and when you have them off the engine won't turn over...bearing seize.
