Default Hello:

Hello everyone: New to this site. My name is Charles and I've been a Corvette lover my whole life. I am currently working on the 3rd one I've owned for the past 7 years which is a 1973 Coupe with a 4 speed, Unfortunately she's not feeling well right now and I was hoping that someone here would be able to identify the problem.
This morning I'm cruising on the freeway doing 65mph. She was running great and I was enjoying the roar of the 383 stroker motor I installed in it 10,000 miles ago when all of a sudden I hear like a backfire and motor starts running really rough. White smoke starting pouring out of the back and she quit running. Pulled over tried to start it, it started for like 3 seconds making a terrible noise and died. After that all I got was a click when turning key. I haven't had a chance to tear into it yet, just wondering what I can expect. Any ideas? Thank you folks in advance. Have a nice evening> Charles:
