Beautiful! These show how black can be the most striking color for a car. It's also the most difficult to maintain.

Couple of things...trolling Facebook, I came across a public Europa members group with about 60 followers. I was wondering if any of our community folks were involved.

 70's photo of Bee Gees Barry Gibb...I guess he wasn't too particular on where he planted himself for the picture.
 I would (#*<*%@")  someone for leaning on an open door let alone placing his arse on the bonnet...wearing shoes!!!

He's a lot cooler sitting on somebody else's car with his shoes on than sitting on mine!

Pretty, but I'd lose the wing. With the small original chin spoiler, that's got to throw off the balance.

With the wing, it's the car from 70s comic series, Circuit Wolf.

I've seen other Europas - mostly from Japan - that use a wing. They seem to REALLY like Europas in Japan!

My guess from front to back is: yellow Mazda something, red TCS, "orange' Honda 600, brown Ford Torino station wagon, white Ford Maverick, gold (?) Corvette Stingray convertible. I have no clue what is behind the TCS and I don't know the brand or model of the camper.

Looks like you are correct with the exception of the Honda. I think that is a early CVCC, 1st generation after the 600s

I think I had one of those Hondas, but I didn't have it long enough to remember which model it was. You're probably right, Joe.
