I met Constance Nunes about a year ago through her younger sister Cassie, who is a tour de force when it comes to setting up charity car shows in Newbury Park, California.    We heard Constance had a TV car show coming up on the horizon and it was going to be great!    Not sure if we were dealing with the next Cristy Lee or the next Edith Mumblefutz we filed the info for later.     Then Netflix dropped “Car Masters : from Rust to Riches” on us.

While the concept is somewhat familiar, buy car, fix up car, sell it for more and get a nicer car….fix it up and sell it for even more.    The twist is pretty cool, customize  the car into something unique and make even something MORE unique!    As for Constance, she may look the part of “eye candy”, she is their engine specialist.   (I’m watching the 8 episodes now).    The girl has some mechanical skills!     I caught up with them at the EG Auctions, “Stars. Cars and Rock N Roll event near Palm Springs!   Listen as I check out her and co-star Mark Towle of “Gotham Garage” cool car stories!!   Also on TAC #127….

Part II of a visit with our Canadian buddy Scott Newstead of the Cold War Motors channel on YouTube! Always entertaining, Scott talks about his top 5 favorite cars he sometime would like to acquire, number one being a Citroen SM Maserati, (which he already has and) which was a car that also came up when I interviewed a well known dynamic duo from Britain.
