Why do you want to start it? Is it full of antifreeze? I know a guy who drove short distances with his blown headgasket by not refilling the anti freeze. But it depends on how bad it is blown and where. I had a blown gasket on an olds that blew between 2 cylinders so no anti freeze was lost/burnt but it would not start on 2 cylinders.

You will need to replace the headgasket to fix the car and run it again !
