Out of all the mechanics we can think of, no one looks quite as good doing their job than Constance Nunes from the popular Netflix show Car Masters: Rust to Riches. She’s the only woman on the crew at Gotham Garage, but she’s a wicked talented engine specialist.
It’s not often that you find a mechanic who also doubles as a smoking hot model, but don’t let Candace’s looks fool you. She’s got tremendous amounts of experience working in the automotive industry. She’s certainly no stranger to being in front of a camera, but for many, the show gave folks their first glimpse at who Constance is. Let’s learn a bit more about the interesting life this woman leads.
Constance Nunes Career
Constance was surrounded by car culture pretty much since she was a child. Her father was a drag racer, and the rest of the family were gearheads that loved to work on cars. She learned a ton from just helping out on the many different projects growing up.
As she progressed further along in her auto industry career, she began working in the service departments for such big-name auto brands as Ford, BMW, Acura, and Audi. Not only did she work for dealerships, but she also held jobs at a variety of different garages in the Los Angeles area. Her experience is one of the reasons she’s so respected around Gotham Garage, and while she maintains a no-nonsense attitude, she’ll also let her work do the talking for her.
If you’ve seen Constance, it shouldn’t be hard to understand how she can also be a model during her time away from the shop. She’s appeared as a car model at the Grand Prix of Long Beach, and has also worked on campaigns for such companies as Wrangler, Jockey, and Feral Cosmetics. Additionally, she was featured in commercials for Motorola and the Kim Kardashian Hollywood game on mobile.
Although Car Masters may have been Constance’s biggest television role so far, she’s also dabbled in the film industry, having worked as a stuntwoman in the movie Dodgeball and several of the Bring It On films. Her versatility led to appearances in several music videos, such as Paris Hilton’s High Off My Love and Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull’s I’m A Freak.
Candace has a history of working in a wide variety of industries, but building hot cars in the auto industry is definitely among her favorite. She’s not shy to acknowledge the fact that she’s a woman in the perceived male-dominated industry, but doesn’t let that stop her from creating beautiful muscle cars.
Candace’s Instagram page has a whopping 830,000 followers and counting. Her bio reads, “Just a glam girl wrenching in a boys world,” and I can’t think of a better description of her. Along with showing off her pretty face, she also shows off her pretty car from time to time, a 1964 Ford Mustang that she’s nicknamed “Babystang.”
Using her large audience, she normally uploads a good amount of sponsored Instagram posts with brands like VP Racing Fuels and Rockstar Energy Drinks. For someone who wrenches on cars, she sure cleans up nice!

While the season 3 dates for Car Masters have not been announced yet, it’s safe to assume that, based on the reality TV show’s popularity, it will soon get renewed.
This is definitely not the last time you’re going to hear Constance Nunes’ name, because this girl is just getting started. She’s an awesome role model for women out there, and I can’t wait to see what she gets into next.
