    My '89 popped the gasket when it was my daily driver. I was 2o years old and a lowly E-I-Owe-You-1 in the military. Couldn't afford to keep putting money into it every other week, so I cut my losses and traded it for a Ranger. That was 8 years ago. I think the car had just about 100k on the odometer. It was a 5 speed.

    To my knowledge as the previous owner stated one of the sides blew and ford repaired it under warranty. Not exactly sure how many miles but probably not many if it was still under warranty. Anyone know what they came with for warranty???

    I've got two SC's, a 90 and a 95. Both have around 98,500 miles. To my knowledge they have the original head gaskets.

    I plan on replacing the head gaskets in my 63K engine befor I drive it one mile.

    So (hopefully) I will never experience this special event.
