    then the engine does not start by the failure of a cylinder? ..
    I read somewhere that white smoke is when antifreeze burns ..
    but I guess these old cars must be cooled by air ..

    well, they were water cooled (aparth from Porsches) and I guess they never raced during winter so antifreeze in the coolant is highly unlikely.
