cant find the leak

im 16 and just bought a 89 f-150 with a 300 strait six and 5 speed stick. my problem is im goin through oil like water and cant find a leak. it used to leak right on the ground when i bought it then i changed the pan gasket and it fixed that problem. but im still going through a ton of oil and its not burning. it must be leaking out going down the road?
the only thing i can think of is it might the head gasket's bad? any ideas anyone?

Re: cant find the leak

i'll do that but i called the guy who brought it up here.
he said when he stopped to get gas after about 90 miles of driving it was bone dry on oil and antifreeze
