seals we used 20 years ago are generally still holding up

Not exactly related specifically to seals but rather to rubber in general, one thing I noticed years ago was that the original rubber on my ‘40s cars was still soft while any pieces that had been replaced quickly hardened after only a few years. In fact, one of my 1940 110s recently appeared on Facebook again and still has the tires from JC Whitney that I put on it in the ‘60s! I wouldn’t want to drive anywhere on them but they looked good and holding air, probably with the same tubes too.
