from oblivion, he showed them
to us and agreed to make them
available to you!  He penned the
following dedication that appears
on the CD…

"These telephone directories were
rescued from a trash pile. Their
preservation is dedicated to the
memory of the early residents of
Goldfield who helped make
Nevada what it is today."

Stories of the ART CAR "RECYCLED":
The Aluminum Folk Art Truck Created by Slim Sirnes.
Compiled and Edited by S. Sirnes Artlip  & N. Sirnes.
This is a series of Articles  written by Svein "Slim" Sirnes which appeared
in the Goldfield Gazette, Death Valley News and other central Nevada
Newspaper in which his popular "Slim Sez" article appeared for many
years.  These stories deal with some of the travels and tribulations
encountered by a retired Millwright when he becomes a "woven
aluminum" artist with an Art Truck.  Proceeds from this book are being
used to pay for repairs to the truck that will make it trip worthy once
again.  Please be advised that while Slim wrote a great story, his grammar
and spelling left a lot to be desired.  Only minor changes were made to
the original stories, otherwise, what you see is what he wrote!

Classic Nevada
The heart of ClassicNevada is the Historic mining
town of Goldfield, Nevada.  Goldfield was, at one
time, the largest city in Nevada with a population of
over 25,000 people.  It is located 180 miles North
of Las Vegas on a two lane paved road that links
Las Vegas to Reno and Northern Nevada to
Southern Nevada.  In December 1902, two
prospectors, Harry Stimler and Billy March found
Gold just West of town.  Goldfield became known
as  “Queen of the Mining Camps” because of its
population, saloons, and other forms of luxury and
“Entertainment” such as gambling and the “ladies of
the evening.”
