It’s time to get introduced to one of the rising stars of the Netflix show "Car Masters: Rust to Riches"

American model and certified car enthusiast Constance Nunes is no stranger to the car-loving population. As one of the stars of the hit Netflix show, Car Masters: Rust to Riches, Nunes has become one of the most recognizable faces in the car industry. There’s no doubt her presence in the show has contributed to her stature dramatically shooting up, but Nunes is more than just a pretty face in a car restoration show. The American born model of Portuguese descent is also a certified car enthusiast whose first, second, and third passions in life involve working on cars. In addition to her involvement in Car Masters, Nunes also works on personal builds and is heavily involved in a lot of car clubs in Southern California, and her experience in the industry also includes years spent working in the service departments of automakers like Acura, Audi, BMW, and Ford. We can see her on Car Masters most of the time, but rest assured, we’re going to see and hear more of Constance Nunes in the coming years.

Constance Nunes’ Best Instagram Posts

While the red gown with high slit looks good on Constance Nunes, we can’t help but check out that piece of hot sauce that she’s leaning against. That, ladies and gentlemen, is a 1964 Ford Mustang. The car itself is a sight to behold, but more important than staring at the ‘Stang is knowing that Nunes actually bought that car when she was only 16 years old. She has since restored it to peak condition, and she’s given it a nickname to go by. Say hello to “Baby ‘Stang,” folks.

Most of the photos on Nunes’ Instagram page include pictures of her with a car. This one’s particularly saucy because it was taken during her visit to the Land Down Under for Hot Import Nights Australia. Not only did Nunes get a chance to enjoy the sights and sounds of the aftermarket show, but she also had a chance to experience the car culture in Oz. That photo of her standing on an A80 Toyota Supra is enough to get our blood flowing.

Unless you count that Dodge Challenger peaking from behind the Craftsman booth (or throne, as she calls it), this is one of the rare photos of Nunes posing without a car. That’s ok. The Craftsman throne will still catch your eye, in large part due to its resemblance to the Iron Thron from Game of Thrones. Let’s be real, though. We’re not really looking at that chair made of wrenches, are we?

Oh, boy.

By now, you should know that Nunes is a big fan of the Ford Mustang. In addition to Baby ‘Stang, Nunes has gotten her hands dirty restoring a lot of Dearborn-based muscle cars, including the one she’s posing with in this photo. She calls her new baby “Danger Stang.” It’s a beaten up Mustang that Nunes stripped down and rebuilt as part of her 2019 SEMA project with Rockstar Garage and Rockstar Energy. If you’ve seen what the finished product looks like, you’ll realize just how good Nunes is at what she does.

Baby Stang once again makes an appearance in Nunes’ Instagram, and we’re not complaining one bit. It certainly helps that Nunes herself looks incredible in the dress she was wearing at the Fabulous Fords Forever event in California last year. Between these two, it’s hard to pick which one is the star of the photo, so we’ll settle for both of them.

Nunes’ garage might be stocked to the brim with Mustangs, but she’s also shown herself to be an equal-opportunity car-lover. As much as she loves her American muscle, Nunes also has a soft spot for German-made performance vehicles like her Audi A5. Apparently, this A5 is the only car in her garage that’s still in stock form at the time of her post. Let’s hope she kept it that way, though we’re not really ones to complain if she did give her A5 the aftermarket treatment.

When Constance Nunes asks you what you drive for your Friday night cruises, you answer her question. No ‘ifs’ and ‘buts’ about it.

As you might expect, Constance Nunes was in attendance at the most recent SEMA Auto Show. As you might expect, too, Nunes was a star among stars at the event. That’s what happens when you get recognized for your knowledge, passion, and straight-up talent in the field of car restoration.

A car as beautiful as the new Porsche 911 deserves to be in the same photo with a woman as beautiful as Constance Nunes. Or is it the other way around? It really doesn’t matter. Both ways work with us.

Automotive Aftermarket Expert -
Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
