Smoking Like Cheech & Chong

Yesterday after a weekend of vintage races and car shows here in Pittsburgh, I figured I was pushing my luck driving the '76 Lancia Scorpion around town.so I brought it home. I headed off in the Audi towards family dinner at my sister-in-law's house. After about 8-10 miles in congested traffic (someone had broken down blocking the road), I took the exit and was cruising through the town (~25 mph) then suddenly there was a huge plume of smoke (whiteish) that smelled like oil. I thought it was wafting forward from the car behind me, but it was actually coming from my tailpipe. I pulled over, checked oil pressure gauge (5 bar on throttle, 2 bar at idle), oil level registered OK on the dipsitck. This came on suddenly, there was no unusual noise, I wasn't even accelerating enthusiastically. I let it sit for a bit, then started it again, same condition. I parked it there and this morning had the car flat bedded to the mechanic shop (who was still unpacking from the vintage races). I doubt he'll even be able to look at it for a while.
Anybody have BTDTs or thoughts on how much I should brace my self for the wallet vac?
