She wouldn't start, but would crank. Thereby, no hydro-lock, which I suppose is great news considering. My first thought was that the water pump gave up the ghost, taking the head gasket with it.

I'm hoping for a better answer, but planning for the worst. I guess worst-case scenario, buy a beater for the winter months and build an engine in the Spring :(

EDIT: That'll teach me to read better...I haven't attempted to start it after it cooled down, had to get to work in the wife's car and got home way-late that evening. It's up the street at the shop, maybe tomorrow evening I'll make it up there(hoped to tonight, no avail) and give it a go.
