Doesn't start after running hot

(1990 Chevrolet S10)
in Waxhaw, NC on September 09, 2010
this is actually a 1988. 3 months ago replaced the water pump and thermostat. Started running a bit rough and I smelled oil leaking from the valve cover on to the exhaust. Engine light came on a few times but the radiator was not hot but I was definitely leaking fluid somewhere. Finally was running very rough and now I cannot start. It turns over but will not "catch" and run.

Ha!... that would have done it ... blown head gasket ... scored cylinders ... sold it for $300
