started up my bird today...its been sitting in the driveway for maybe 2 months. it was driving ok before that.

opened the hood to tighten battery cable...started her up...saw some whiteish smoke started coming up from somewhere (towards the rear of the engine, in front of the windscreen.)

also some whiteish smoke coming out of tail pipe.

let me guess...head gaskets right?

anyone wanna buy an otherwise beautiful red '90 with 140kms on it?

EDIT

cars been running for a bit now...smokes gone? could it just have been some junk burning off?

Could very well be debris and condensation----just keep an eye on it for a while......Dan
