Constance Nunes from Car Masters: Rust to Riches is coming back to Toronto Motorama show

Constance Nunes, known for her role on the Netflix TV show CAR MASTERS: Rust to Riches, is set to make an appearance at the Motorama Custom Car & Motorsports Expo presented by eBay Motors.

Nunes will be on hand to meet showgoers all three days of Motorama, which runs March 8, 9 & 10 at Toronto’s International Centre. She’ll be located at the Lincoln Electric booth, in Hall 2, as well as in other designated locations, where she will engage with fans, participate in panel discussions, and join in awards presentations.

This marks Nunes’ second appearance at the Toronto Motorama show, following her initial visit in 2020, which was cut short due to the onset of the COVID pandemic.

“My first time at Motorama, in 2020, was so much fun but it was a bit of a hectic time with the beginning of the pandemic. Everyone wasn’t sure exactly what would be happening but was just excited to be there and make it all work the best we could. I had such a fun time meeting a lot of amazing people and seeing some incredible builds before we were cut short. This year I’m really excited about coming back to Toronto Motorama under more normal circumstances because I know how incredible this show is going to be!” said Nunes. “CAR MASTERS: Rust to Riches is on Netflix, in Canada, so I know a lot of people are familiar with the show and it will be great to connect with all of the fans here.”

Growing up in southern California, Nunes honed her skills as an engine specialist while assisting at her father’s garage. She also credits her father for her love of racing, which developed at local racetracks in the area.

With over 20 years of experience in the automotive industry, Nunes serves as the lead mechanic at Gotham Garage, where she contributes to crafting unique and specialized cars featured on the Netflix series, now streaming its fifth season. Beyond her television endeavors, Nunes boasts an extensive background working with major automotive companies, appearing in commercials, showcasing her expertise at industry events such as SEMA and the Performance Racing Industry show as well as owning her own hotrod and restoration shop, CARS by Constance.

Nunes’ passion for racing extends beyond the screen, as she has competed in notable events like the Targa Trophy and The Gumball 3000 Rally. At the 2020 Motorama show, she even assisted in a stock car build between her various appearances.

“My dad has had a hotrod shop for decades now, so I grew up really immersed in the automotive community. We grew up building cars and my dad drag raced on the weekends, so we would get loaded up in the RV and spend the weekends at the dragstrip. I always pictured myself doing what he did, including racing. Although I thought I’d be more ‘behind the wheel,’ I ended up more in the engine bay, primarily. I’ve always loved driving fast cars and technical driving though and look to get back into it.”

A lover of classic and hot rod restorations, Nunes holds a particular fondness for classic Mustangs, exemplified by her cherished 1964.5 model nicknamed ‘Babystang,’ which she has owned and maintained for nearly two decades. Babystang frequently graces Nunes’ popular Instagram feed, boasting a substantial following of over 1.3 million fans.

Nunes is dedicated to inspiring young builders and automotive enthusiasts, particularly women, to pursue their passions within the industry without constraints. She aims to break stereotypes by embodying the dual identity of a hard-working mechanic who is also fiercely feminine.
