In June of 2014, right after my birthday, I traded a 77 chevey c10 scottsdale shortbed for an 1984 z28 camaro that had a 350 installed. The car had some over heating trouble when I first got it that I thought I had Fixed, but when I made the move back to Kentucky for Tennessee It overheated and stopped running. there was white smoke coming out from under the hood, and there was oil on the bottom of the air filter and around the carbarator. So I loaded myself, my dog, and my stuff in my grandfathers truck and continued on, my cousin called his buddy and had the truck towed the 20 minuites back to his house, where it has been sitting since september. I want to get the car back, but I don't know what to do to fix it or how I am going to get it up here. Any help or advice would be welcome, I do not have the ablity to get to the camaro, it's three and a half hours away.

U-Haul trailer. Don't try to fix it then get it home. Not worth the headache.
You could have blown head gaskets. Not a quick fix.

+1 U-Haul is your cheapest option but requires some work or a big favor from a friend.

U-Haul or a shipping company to bring it home.

Is it an old-school SBC 350 or did someone swap in an LT1 from a 93-97 Z/28?

It's an old school 350 with a carb, And I will more than likely end up shipping it here.

Sounds like head gaskets.

Also, check the water pump and flush the radiator and the entire cooling system, you may have corrosion or God knows what else after 30 years.
