A planned Mexico City tour stop turned into a nightmare for the Spanish electronica quartet Delorean over the weekend. Delorean was the victim of what police described as a "virtual kidnapping," in which members of the group were held for several days in a hotel while terrified family members were told to pay a large ransom or they'd be harmed. "Virtual kidnapping" is a new form of crime in Mexico , in which the perpetrators play on fears of violence to extract ransoms even when the victims aren't in immediate danger.

Moran's article correctly points out that DeLorean is a victim of our criminal system. DeLorean spent days in prison and months in court, and incurred a substantial amount of attorneys' fees, all because a handful of government agents decided to catch DeLorean, at the taxpayers' expense, in their net. There is no doubt, as Moran points out, that statutes should be enacted to compensate victims who suffer from our criminal system as DeLorean has....

The preeminent all-ages event in L.A. music, the FYF Fest, returns with arguably its best lineup yet. The Rapture still throws down disco jams to move girls and guys in their girlfriends' jeans alike; Wavves, Abe Vigoda and Best Coast codify the moment in woozy, lusty punk; Delorean and Panda Bear hold down for electronica-enabled experimentation.

Your most enjoyable article on Ortega Highway [Road Trip, by E. Scott Reckard, Aug. 27] brought back fond memories of my visit to relatives in San Juan Capistrano last Easter when I was on a "mission" to buy a DeLorean sports car. As a patriotic Northern Irishman, I fulfilled a dream to own a DeLorean (the DMC was manufactured in Belfast). Where better to enjoy the beast than over the Ortega Highway again and again? It reminded me of country roads in the wilds of northwest Ireland, though on the latter, one doesn't encounter so many speed-trap cops!

A Bel-Air house built in the 1930s that has been home to many celebrity owners over the years has come on the market at $10,995,000. Actress Betty Grable, musician Stephen Stills, actress Jacqueline Smith, motor company founder John DeLorean and former entertainment executive Anthony Thomopoulous and his wife, actress-talk show host Cristina Ferrare, have all called the gated residence home. Situated on nearly an acre of park-like grounds with a pool, spa and mature trees, the country English-style house has a two-story entry hall, a club-like den with wood beam ceilings, a media room, an updated kitchen, an office, six bedrooms, seven bathrooms and staff quarters in more than 3,500 square feet of living space.

Takasugi, a survivor of a World War II relocation camp for Japanese Americans who was known for his compassion for victims of injustice and his calm demeanor in the face of sometimes outrageous courtroom antics, has died. He was 78. Takasugi died Tuesday at a Los Angeles nursing home after battling numerous ailments over the last year, said his son, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Jon Takasugi.

THERE IS no end in sight to fashion's infatuation with the Reagan era. Fast-fashion chains are stocking Ray-Ban rip-offs, tapered jeans are seeping back into style and neon colors are all the rage, so naturally the cheapie plastic sports watch is once again a bona fide accessory. And is it ever a watch for our times. Most can be had for less than $100.

Danny Botkin's love affair with the DeLorean got off to an unpromising start. It was the early '80s and a teen-age Botkin was tagging along while his father shopped for a new car. A Ford dealer had a rear-engined, gull-winged DeLorean on display, and the flash of stainless steel automotive skin caught Danny's eye. "I was smitten," Botkin, now 40, recalls. "I said, 'Hey Dad, let's get this.' "He got a Bronco instead." Botkin had to grow up and buy his dream car himself.

The death of John Z. DeLorean on Saturday put me in mind of a 15th century English epitaph: "His life was a well-acted story of himself." Talk about drama: The love-starved son of an alcoholic foundry worker, DeLorean rose on his native intellect and fierce energy to lead first General Motors' Pontiac division -- credited with cars such as the GTO and Grand Prix -- beginning in 1965, then the Chevrolet division (starting in 1969). In 1972, he attained the vice-presidency of GM in record time.

It was one of the most horrific crashes ever captured on film: The grainy, hidden-video footage of a sweaty John Z. DeLorean, Detroit dream maker and father of the Pontiac GTO, in 1982 wrangling a deal for a suitcase full of cocaine in a Los Angeles hotel room, as part of a fumbled bid to save his nearly bankrupt DeLorean Motor Co. At a stroke, the career of one of Motown's most brilliant and influential executives, an automotive auteur, was entombed in this single, ridiculous image: John Z.
