I've looked at the bodies section here, not many pictures to look at and figure out what I have here!
 
The top far left body is stamped Champion and it's also stamped "Waters"??
 
I would guess the middle top is a Porsche?
 
I think that the bottom right is a Honker?
 
Otherwise clueless! Maybe some Can-Am stuff?
 
Thanks!

Top - left to right: does it have V12 then it´s a Ferrari 612, Porsche? don´t know, Lola T70 for sure.

Bottom - left to right: Autocast Ti22, Alfa Romeo 33 coupe, Honker.

Upper right body is a Zerex Special, a Penske-modified Lola, IIRC.

There was a Lola T-70 labeled as a "Zerex Special", but this body looks like a version that used weber sidedraft carbs instead of either downdraft or fuel injection....that would be the reason for the large opening behind the cockpit

Another version of the Penske Zerex Lola, although with vintage racing today there can be a question of the authenticity of the car.
