Check how much blow-by you have by removing the pipe from the camcover that runs to the intake . With the engine warm it shouldn't bellow smoke , if it is then the rings are probably worn . Is the carbon dry or oily ?

Does this car have an EGR system? My 1980 model does not. If it does, then that might be soot from the EGR.
