I think Sebastian got us pointed in the right direction. I confused "using" oil with "burning" oil. If the car sat for 5 years I would be willing to bet that the oil drained from the tank into the sump and made its way past the valve guides into the exhaust, hence all the smoking. I highly recommend you drive the car for a good 2-3 hours and see if the smoking goes away.
