Chastain S/3 Mercury Capri. NEW Roger Chastain Associates of Long Beach California was primarily known for its "Shadow" line of rear window louvers, but developed a series of three conversions for the 1976-77 Capri II. S/1, S/2, and S/3 simply stood for Shadow Stage 1, Shadow Stage 2 and Shadow Stage 3. The S/1 just had stripes; the S/2 had the stripes and louvers plus a front air dam and ducktail rear spoiler; the S/3 had all the features of the S/2, plus a special set of fiberglass fender flares. The Chastain S-3 was featured on the cover of the July 1976 issue of Hot Rod magazine. The September 1976 and April 1977 issues of Road & Track also had short articles on the S/3. Road Test magazine tested a Chastain S/3 in its March 1977 issue. The S/3 package weighed about 200 pounds and cost about $3500 with installation. See advertisement and more information at Chastain Inventors.

The initial Chastain conversion packages were cosmetic only, so that Road & Track could call it "one of the foremost image cars today.". There were plans for a suspension package to go along with the cosmetic package, but insurance concerns killed the roll-out of the package, though a few early vehicles were produced. They sported Koni shock absorbers, rear trailing links, compression struts in the front, and heavy duty anti-roll bars. The front springs were one inch shorter and the rear had one-inch lowering blocks.

The Chastine Maersk. NEW The Chastine Maersk was a Danish cargo ship. Maersk-Sealand from Copenhagen is world’s biggest container shipping line. The Chastine Maersk had a capacity of 6,000 TEU (twenty-feet equivalent units), which means they can load 6,000 containers of 20 feet length. The ship was named after ship owner A.P. Møller’s wife, Chastine Mc-Kinney Møller. Built in 1953, she was renamed Jesper Maersk in 1968. She was then sold in 1976 to Sin Chiao Shipping Ltd who renamed her New Bear. She was broken up at Gadani Beach in 1981-82.

The Chastain. The Chastain is a house design of LCW Residential, Inc., which specializes in custom home construction in luxurious north Atlanta.
