water coming out the tail pipes is pretty common , just condensation.
if the motor hasnt been started for a year or so then i would not be worried about the puffs of smoke yet, give a chance to burn all the crap out first.might to go for a good long drive.
over heating ???
did you change the thermostat , could be sticking, did the radiator hoses get really hot that quick ?or did you just check the guage.
did you turn it off when it was getting hot or did it settle down to a constant temp.
