A smoking 1985 Cadillac. It's a good thing Caddy only made one model that year so everyone knows exactly what kind of car you're talking about.
Blue smoke from any engine may or may not be a major problem. It could be something as simple as an incorrect/faulty PCV valve or something as major as a cracked/burnt piston. There is no way of knowing without seeing the car, because you certainly haven't provided enough information for anyone to make an EWAG. As to whether or not it's worth fixing, I can tell you beyond a shadow of a doubt the answer is maybe. It all depends on what the car is worth to you. Honestly, isn't most of what I just typed with the exception of the minor technical info, pretty damn obvious?
