Question about Cars & Trucks
Recently had bluish tail pipe smoke when parked. Radiator nearly Dry. Oil looks a tad overfull. Actron OBD II Scan Code P 0306 with out engine running. Full Fill Radiator with 50 / 50 GM Coolant. Need to know if I can drive to Mechanic or Should I get a Tow???
Your vehicle is plenty old enough to smoke (ha, ha), and mileage that high could account for it smoking. I'd take the shot on driving it to the mechanic (but then I am a praying man, and that would be my very first step).

If this is a 3800, Upper Intake Plenum or Lower intake gaskets are an inevitability. Head gaskets on these engines rarely go out! Seriously, don't get duped. I am doing the job on my grand prix right now. Google it for further explanation.

Sounds like your oil pressure sending unit is faulty! When you turn the key on, is the gauge reading low, then you start it and it pegs out? if so, the sending unit has failed.
