Default Overheating Issue

Hey guys thanks for viewing this post. So this is the first Camaro I own and so far im loving it. Its a 1995 Z28 6 speed. I was on the freeway and noticed that the car was overheating, so I exited and got the car towed back home. The following day I topped off the radiator and turned the car on. There was alot of white smoke coming from the tailpipes and the temperature gauge went up/overheated in a matter of 2 minutes. I have checked the oil and there is no water in it. I was thinking that the water is not circulating? Please any input would help greatly. I put a new thermostat thinking it had stopped working but this did not help. I have since turned the car on a couple more times this time alot less smoke at the start then after a minute smoke goes away but overheats in about 3 minutes. Thanks guys.

first get all the air out. with reverse cooling in the lt1 steaming can happen with very little air in the system. have a look here https://camaroforums.com/forum/lt1-l...-system-66742/
