White smoke coming out of a Mazda rx-7 that i'm thinking about buying?

I went to see a 1988 mazda rx-7, the body looks great and it sounds pretty good, but when the seller turned it on white smoke came out both exhaust pipes and smelled like gas.

Does that sound like something major? and how much would it cost to fix if i buy the car?
he's only selling it for $1000

a bit of white smoke can be normal on start up lasting until the car has been driven and warmed up,especially if it's cold outside.A lil gas smell would be normal as well as that car is more than likely carburated far less efficent than fuel injection so again until it warms up you may smell some gas.1,000 dollars is an excellent price for that car(maybe too cheap ?)they can go for up to 5,000 so it may be worth having checked out by a pro and may I suggest a rotary specialist best of luck man that's a hot lil ride

Jonathon,that video makes rotary look so simple
