Possibly head gaskets which are difficult to repair correctly. http://www.northstarperformance.com/sgstuds.php

Do you notice any white smoke coming out the tail pipes on the initial startup? Or possibly a slight engine miss that goes away after just a few seconds? Coolant in the oil or oil in the coolant, all of the above are sure signs of a blown headgasket. And yes they will still run very strong until they blown completely out. Other things could be a bad thermostat, restriction in the cooling system, blocked air flow through the radiator, inoperative cooling fans. HTH

Try a full cooling system service - new hoses, flush, t-stat and coolant and make sure the cooling fans work properly. You may also need a new radiator if flushing does not bring the temps down.
