Short story, a friend of mine blew out their upper radiator hose a month or so ago. When the spark plugs were changed out last weekend they were, what looked to me, rusted/corroded (pics below). After the plugs were changed I noticed a very small amount of white smoke coming out of the exhaust pipe.

I've never actually seen the signs of a blown head gasket or spark plugs that looked that rusty. Let me know what you all think.

Car: 02 Ford Focus ZX3 little over 100k on the clock.
Mods: CB and SRI
