Repair estimate on 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse

Hello! I recently purchased a 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse Turbo that is in great condition on the outside, but needs a little love on the engine. This is my first time handling such things, and am looking for an outside opinion. I took my new little car into a local shop and the mechanic called me back and informed me that my car is leaking everywhere. The oil pan, the head gasket, and a few other places I can't even pronounce - something about cylinders and rings?. He gave me an estimate of $1200 and I told him to go ahead. He then called me back and said he'd done his math wrong, that the repairs would be $2100! How do these estimates sound? The car was leaking oil on the driveway and had some white smoke coming from the tail pipe, so I know it needed fixing. Can I trust this estimate?
