Need help 94 mustang gt

So i started my car this mornin and i opened the hood cause i could smell something and it was my headers they were smoking. I have heard that mustangs when the car sits in the rain and theres moisture in the engine the headers will smoke. Another question is can i drive the car with this happening? Any help will be appreciated

If it is on the outside of the headers it is likely just condensation burning off.
It won't hurt to drive it if that is what it is.


It could also be oil leaking from your valve covers.
In that case you should fix it as soon as you can, but it won't hurt to drive it if it is not excessive.
