They were on their way to being
tossed out as old garbage in mid
2007 when an astute collector
saw them. After saving them
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!
