Not a good sign.

Crünchy ToastSo I\'m starting my car this morning to go to work and a large cloud of blue smoke was produced from the my car\'s exhaust. This can\'t be good. The smoke quickly subsided but alas I think my 14 year old car is reaching the end of its useful life. Not that I\'m complaining, I\'ve received 14 years of near trouble-free service from it. Enough so that I would buy another Honda in a heartbeat. I\'m just hoping that I can get another couple of years out of it, giving us time to pay off Mrs. Evil\'s car, that way we\'re not carrying two car payments.

Sounds like a bit of 'valve drip' burn. (Basically, oil dripping through the valves while the vehicle is sitting)

Have the compression checked, if it's all "pretty good" (e.g. 110 - 125 range - I think factory on those engines is 130-135), you might get away with having the valves reground/reseated.

Otherwise, you're staring at rings - and therefore an overhaul of the motor.
