My garage queen 7 up 'vert developed a small radiator leak while sitting in the garage this winter. When i removed the radiator cap, there was a Dirty looking foam on the top of the anti freeze.

I panicked and thought the head gasket had blown. I pulled the dipstick and could only see clean oil, no foam or green fluid.

The only other thing is I had the radiator repaired 2 years ago. This was an old school hot tank and solder fix. Is it possible I'm seeing the leftovers from this repair?

Any ideas on what this is?

If you can smell coolant from the open radiator mouth when the car is warmed up and idling, you have a gasket problem. If you can't, you probably don't, but you can't rule it out without further testing. Compression test, exhaust-gas/coolant test, etc.
