If the car keeps blowing gaskets then it could be:

Either the block or head faces are not flat - these should be checked if a gasket failure occurs
The bolts haven't been tightened correctly / or replaced if required
Incorrect gasket used.

Sudden overheating could be:
A faulty thermostat
Cracked cylinder head or failed head gasket pumping combustion gas into the system and overpressurising it.

And unless the block and head have already been skimmed / machined past the service limit then fitting another gasket shouldn't be a problem.
