Then when it starts, there's a huge white smoke load that comes out my muffler for a couple of minutes...
Can't see what it is...head gasket maybe

I'm thinking intake manifold gaskets probably. I've got a weber on it, so carb base is new. I suspect it was just the angle I parked it at and one cylinder got a little water in it. Either that or it could be the rust hole in my trunk and the leaky trunk lid - perhaps I had a bunch of water that ran out onto my exhaust.
Who knows - I care nothing about this car, and it's simply an experiment to see how many miles I can go on a car I've spent less than $500 on. $260 so far and over 9,000 miles. (I'm not counting the cost of the Weber, since of course I'll take that back off if the car goes away - different expense catagory much like oil and filters).

I had made my own intake gaskets, just to get engine running after swapping intake and installing Weber, and had the proper gaskets on order. When I pulled the intake to install the new gaskets, the home-made ones had blown out between the water passage and the intake port.
