I have a 2001 that just blew the head gasket at 60K miles. Does anyone know if this is a common thing?

Extremely uncommon, even on supercharged cars. Typically the headgaskets don't let go but the pistons/rods/rings do.

If you have what appears to be a head gasket fault, it is possible that it may be related to the heads and not the head gasket. I had issues with mine that Ford could not resolve which is one reason why I no longer own it.
