Flashing Engine light, white smoke out back?

My ZO6 came on tonight with the Check Engine light... about 5 miles later, it starts to flash, DIC said 32 PSI oil pressure... so I do not panic... I come to a stop and the engine died... all kinds of white smoke out the back... a few cranks later, we are off and running, check engine light still blinking... Passenger checks the manual.. a flashing check engine = missfire? which makes sence, the car feels like it is running on 4 or 6 not all 8...
Lots of white smoke... parked the car, the smoke was very sweet smelling, did not smell like oil...

I also dumped in a quart of Mobil 1 which I carry with me...

Any ideas?

Will be taking it to dealer in the AM.

Great news...but what did they tell you made the wires melt down? What generated that much heat? Something had to have happened. What caused the wires to come in contact with the fuel rail?
