Re: blown head gasket!
a new head gasget is not expensive, i forget how much but not a huge deal, and its not abig job in replacing. i wouldnt imagine a great deal of internal damage being done to be honest. whilst the head is off get everything checked but it shouldnt be to bad.
head gasget to be honest is something you could change yourself easily enough. head off, clean down, flush engine out, new gasget on, quick check for anything obvious, head back on, nipped up, new oil and filter, away you go!
if your not confiden doing it get a gaage to do, half a days work i would expect.
someone will be along who can be of more help im sure.
by the way, that is one VERY nice collection you have there!
