Parking on a hill, smoke on start up?

I've had my car in the workshop for 6 months or so. The front wheels are on the ground, but the rears are 1 foot off the ground on stands.

Started it up today after sitting for months. Very hard to start, feels to be flooded but I suspect the oil is drowning the plugs? Oil is dripping out the pin hole rust in the exhaust before the turbo. Blew so much white smoke that a neighbor thought my shed was on fire.

Could it be a a pool of oil down the front of the engine leaking past the rings and sitting in the cylinders?

Has anybody had a bit of smoke after start up while parked on a hill?
