Overheating, stuck thermostat, bad water pump, plugged radiator cooling fins or internal corrosion, blown head gaskets, cracked head, cracked block, any of the above.

...very bad....Did someone use garden hose water instead of coolant...this would have rusted up the works....flush in an environmentally responsible fashion (5 gal. buckets to the auto parts store) and use 50/50 with a rust inhibitor...of course a new thermostat...and a new waterpump would get the flow goin' too----cannot speak for the radiator----use a thermo-spot gun to find the hot spots~
