There is a blown head gasket allowing coolant into the cylinders thus burning out the exhaust. Head or heads need to come off and checked for cracks, warp-page, gaskets replaced.

Well you have the overheating possibility. Probably not going to be able to travel far with the vehicle.

Headgasket replacement and possible machining of heads is not cheap, just be prepared that you might be looking at spending more than you bought the car. It's all in the labor costs.

Thanks tom
