If you're fast and don't mind putting in a headgasket and water pump (engine 
doesn't seem to be harmed)  have I  got a deal for you.  Seriously, the 
$800-$1200 cost of having the work done is almost as much as the car is worth 
on the market, and we can't tackle it ourselves any more.  It is charcoal 
(black with gold flecks) gray interior, in generally good shape.  We've never 
had to do any major work on it.  It is in Solana Beach, CA.  Can't talk money 
now.  I'm too emotional about it.   Hadn't read  your other post when I wrote 
this, but the original symptom  seems pretty much the same as ours, except we 
stopped the car immedately and cooled it down with the motor running.  After 
it had cooled down a bit, the engine died and we couldn't restart it.  There 
was water everywhere and that probably accounts for the engine dying.  The 
mechanic got it started after we left it with him.
