White vapor is indicative of coolant entering combustion chamber. Check oil see if normal. Also check coolant for loss.

Are so wrong.
There was a vacuum hose that had been disconnected from the distributor cap's timing advance regulator.
The white vapor was caused by faulty ignition timing, a.K.A, incomplete combustion.
Honestly, I cannot believe that this option has not been addressed on this site. Car pros.

The first reply was correct for the question posted, you indicated white vapor which is a sign of coolant in the combustion chamber and this would account for the best part of 99% of this symptom, mind you the response has suggested that you check the cooling system and oil and has not claimed that this is the problem, we don't have the advantage of viewing the problem first hand so we must rely on the information posted, I feel that your comments are quite uncalled for, I am sure that every moderator on this site would suggest this check first up.

XTCoX I'd bet my 45 years Automotuve experience that a vacuum line off the advance will not cause smoke. The advance does not effect engine timming until @1800 RPMS.
I'll pray for you
