Constance Nunes: The Car Masters’ Engine Specialist Was Once Married

Netflix’s ‘Car Masters: Rust to Riches’ is a treat for antique car lovers who enjoy watching a classic car being brought back to life. The TV show follows a team from the renowned Gotham Garage, which made its name in the entertainment industry as brilliant car builders. In each episode, the team of experts takes up a unique classic car and gives it a completely modern transformation. It is fascinating to see the many details the team has to manage to unlock each car’s potential. Ultimately, the vehicles are sold for a massive profit.

Constance Nunes is the lead mechanic and engine expert on the team and has been appearing on the show since its premiere. Being a woman in a male-dominated profession has been quite a challenge for this brilliant professional. Yet, she has defied all odds and made her skill and love for cars speak on her behalf. With a side hustle as a model and a long history of working in the automotive industry, fans have been clamoring to know more about Constance’s personal experiences. Let’s take a look, shall we?

Constance Nunes’ Family and Early Life

Born on November 17, 1989, in Los Angeles, California, Constance Nunes is extremely proud of her Portuguese heritage. Ever since her childhood, she has built up a tight bond with her father, Ernie Nunes, whom she honors even today. She was first introduced to cars through him, an amateur race car driver plus an expert mechanic. Falling in love with the profession from a young age, she picked up the skills from her father and made them a defining part of her life. Even after gaining fame, she remains close to her father and never misses a chance to appreciate everything he has done for her.

Interestingly, being a mechanic is not the only feather in Constance’s cap. As an avid motorsport lover, she used to accompany her father to all kinds of events, from where she eventually got offers to model at car trade shows too. She has since never looked back and has gone on to model for top brands, including Jockey, Wrangler, and Motorola. She has even worked as a stunt woman and background performer in the entertainment industry, bringing her talent to several productions, including ‘Dodgeball’ and the ‘Bring It On’ franchise.

Constance Nunes’ Relationships

According to reports, Constance Nunes was married to fellow autophile Jared Toller until fairly recently. This duo had ostensibly first come across one another through mutual friends at a party. He’d then helped her open a stubborn bottle of wine, leading to them immediately taking to each other and discovering their mutual passion for automobiles. With a lot in common, it did not take long for the pair to start seeing each other.

The couple subsequently dated for quite a long time, and Jared supported Constance through thick and thin. They then even decided to take their relationship to the next stage and announced their engagement before tying the knot in a beautiful ceremony on February 9, 2019, in the Newhall Mansion in Piru, California.

Constance and Jared were together for nearly a decade, yet they both preferred to remain quite private about their bond in the public sphere. While she used social media platforms to spread her wings as a professional, he had a limited presence there as well. But alas, things didn’t pan out, and he soon filed for divorce.

Constance actually spoke of their separation on the popular YouTube talk show titled ‘No Focks Given,’ and she even shared an Instagram post detailing the same towards late 2020. She penned, in part,”I dont open up too much about my personal life because I’m pretty old school in the way of keeping my things to myself….but this year, year and a half actually, was a fuckin roller coaster.”

Constance added, “I separated from my husband after 9 years together because life is really hard, and truly never felt more disconnected from myself in my entire life, yet i have the most amazing family, friends and all of my shop families that helped me pick up all the pieces and loved me more than i could ever repay.” However, it doesn’t appear as if this bothers her anymore considering she has seemingly stepped back into the dating world again, as evidenced by her Valentine’s Day 2022 post, seen above. Though whether or not she’s seriously romantically involved with anyone as of writing is unclear.
