It could just running a little rich, especially with those mods. You may want to check the compression with a test and see if there is any mayo in the oil. That's the only thing that comes to mind when I think of smoke out of an exhaust.

It's really hard to tell from the looks of it. 1. I see white smoke with a little bit of gray in there which means that it is running rich. 2. It could be burning coolant which is bad!
Looks like it was started cold too. I definitely would have it checked out before I bought it.

Get a compression test on your engine asap, and post up the results.

Also, if the car has any written service records...go through them to see if there is anything related to engine repairs at any point.
