I am assuming rubber on tires is not different

Ed, it is somewhat the same.  However, tire manufacturing includes anti-ageing and softening compounds (plasticizers) incorporated in the process.  These are normally good enough to prevent the problems during the expected tread life of the tire.  All tires will harden with age as the plasticizers and other compounds added bleed out over time (years).

Took the C-5 out today to fill it up and then put it away in it's spot in the garage. Have some work to do on the 76, so it will be in the garage in the basement of the house.  Want to change rad. support frame and then paint as much of the frame as I can get at.  Have to put a new yoke seal in the rear. The drip is getting worse. Will probably put in new U-Joints while it is there.
