smoke from tailpipe on startup smoke from tailpipe on startup

I have spent a lot of money trying to get this car back to its glory days, but this nagging issue has costs me a lot of money. I have had a new timing chain and other parts fixed and I now cannot get rid of this smoke on start up. It lasts for about a minute then fades away.
