Why Do Cars Overheat?

I'm just wondering, what's wrong with an engine getting too hot? Suppose all the rubber belts were replaced with metal chains, and the radiator were removed. I'm thinking that unless the lubrication can't work (catches fire) at temperatures that high, or the engine is inefficient because the air gets too hot, but there could be ways around that, right?
