    Doesn't matter...a combustion chamber-to-coolant system leak can easily NOT end up with coolant in the oil (or oil in coolant).

    White smoke = coolant is getting into the cylinders. My '84 had this issue when I first got it. Turned out the heads had cracked and someone attempted to repair the cracks (unsuccessfully).

    Remembering an old friend.

    This month marks the 4th anniversary of the day my resurrected, very "unique", '84 committed suicide in my garage/driveway. I'll never forget this 'ol girl.
