Head gaskets need a reason to give way.

How long has the 'Coolant' been in without flush and replacment?
Coolant goes acidic when you leave it in too long and will compromised the head gasket, along with things like water pump, thermostat, radiator.

Have you overheated the vehicle lately?
Overheat will expand the head bolts to the point the gasket can fail and will progressively will get worse.

Is your distributor set in the correct position?
One tooth forward will fire two cylinders at once in the firing order, and the second cylinder will fire 90 degrees too soon, hammering the head gasket out.
This takes time, you can run MONTHS with an advanced distributor before this happens...

If you have a HEI distributor, many of them are WAY too far advanced when you are under load, and that will hammer a head gasket out over time.

Some times you have those old head gaskets, and they just rot out after 25+ years of abuse!
I've seen the steel shim gaskets rust out,
The fiber gaskets rot out,

The only one that doesn't give up easily is Fel-Pro 'Blue' gaskets with the stainless steel 'O' ring at the cylinder.

REMEMBER,
'Free' internet information is worth EXACTLY what you paid for it!
