Question about Chevrolet Camaro
You never said if the heads were resurfaced or not. That copper stuff is a gasket and radiator sealant. It can plug up several tubes in the radiator. Check for a blown head gasket this way. Take the radiator cap off on a cold engine. Start the engine and watch for coolant to travel by looking in the radiator. When the thermostat opens, the level will do one of two things. 1) it will spit out and overflow out the filler. This would suggest a blocked radiator. 2) the level will drop and you will see the tops of some of the tubes in the radiator. If some of them are plugged, then a rerod of the radiator is needed. if there are bubbles in the coolant, this indicates a warped head or a blown head gasket. Anything you find won't be cheap to repair.

The rust is probably in the engine. There are many little pockets, water ways, water jackets (around the cylinders), etc, so getting all the rust out without dunking the block and heads in a cleaning tank is about imposible. I would recommend giving it really good flush every 4 to 6 months. I would try flushing the radiator before replacing it because it is probably not rusted, even though it is full of gunk.

Check to make sure that the air dam under the car is in place. The other suggestions are good and definitely can contribute to overheating. I had a situation on my 95 3.4 when it was about a year old - my wife tore the spoiler off - this channels air into the engine compartment. You will notice that the 4th gen camaros don't have a traditional "grill" - the dam is the only way that air can get pushed up.
Once again, I'm not discounting the other 2 posts - they are on target as well.

you don't say what year caddy. but older models (especially the 4.1L) did have a problem with intake manifolg blockages and gasket leaks. if that sounds like it could be your problem try replacing the intake manifold gasket, and clean out the inside of the manifold while it's off either manually, or by having it put in an acid vat at a rebuild shop or napa center
