    Michigan Vehicle Solutions saw an opening and figured it was time to shake up the truck bed cap segment. Enter the fastback bed cap. Yes, it's inspired by a Ford Mustang Fastback of yore, and it's available for purchase. The Drive spoke with the company's CEO Rich Oliver in a Friday report, who said the cap absolutely is a matter of "form over function." Basically, the fastback cap limits cargo space and is one big experiment to see if truck owners will take to a new kind of bed cap. The Aero X, as the company calls it, costs $3,995 and works with 2015 and newer F-150 models with 5.5- and...
