    They usually last until about 100K miles on a stock motor, so I wouldn't say they pop easily.

    Although I didn't have all the maintenance history on my '90 I'm fairly certain I changed the original head gaskets at 146K. This would be backed up by the fact that my wife's old '96 Mustang went 153K or so on documented original head gaskets and my '95 Taurus went 140K on it's second set of head gaskets. All I do is change the coolant bi-annually and beat the crap out of them, seems to work.
