Driving around with a blown headgasket has probably caused more problems than just replacing the gasket. No telling what has happened until you tear it apart and rebuild. While coming apart I would inspect everything in the engine bay and on the engine.

Well one good thing, the gasket is blown in a place that is not allowing water into the crankcase or cylinder it looks like. Assuming there is no coolant in the oil or cylinders.
We all know it comes down to how much you have to spend when something like this happens. With that said though, do it right or you will be doing it again.
The damage super hot cylinder gases causes varies in how bad the gasket was breached. Gouges/Channels in the aluminum head can be too deep to even resurface, gases escaping outside to the engine bay can melt things.
Just think of it like taking an acetylene torch to anything.
So basically you Have to take the engine out and have a competent engine builder go through it. But it doesn't end there, since the engine is out other things needs to be check and/or changed; water pump, timing belt pulley, tensioner, belt, oil pump, clutch, TOB and fork etc.
These cars are no longer new and if you want to keep it and drive it for any length of time, unfortunately money and time will have to be spent.
