What have I bought on a whim?

As the title says I bought these two 1/24th scale cars on a bit of a whim and why not.

Don't really know what I've got or from what period so any help appreciated.

First up

Vehicle Hood Car Automotive design Motor vehicle

My first thought is a McLaren body?. The writing on the cockpit is M.A.C (or G). I'm assuming pre painted as the finish is very thing and translucent and there is some clear plastic where the wheel arches have been cut out.
Chassis is steel..

Ignore the motor as someone has fitted a Johnston.

Second up
Automotive lighting Motor vehicle Bumper Automotive design Gas

with a brass chassis

Motor vehicle Automotive lighting Paint Gas Tints and shades

Can't see any markings and from the design it looks to be adjustable?

Interesting smorgasbord...

The first has a Flexi type chassis, but not sure if it's by Parma or one of their competitors; somebody who does more modern racing should be able to identify it for you. Could be anywhere from the 1990s to present. MAC was the main body supplier for serious slot racers in the 1970s, following Lancer, Dynamic, etc. (the book Slot Car Dreams has lots more info)

The second has an AYK chassis from Japan; they made a lot of stuff for various manufacturers and also issued their own items like this chassis. It would probably take a can-drive 16D mounted on its side. The body is a modified Lotus 40, offered by... not sure here, maybe the distributor Western Hobbies and I think Riggen did something like that too.

Our posts crossed Chris, or chris-crossed... Are you sure about the Lotus being a Lancer? I didn't think they did one with those spoilers...
