Archived: Bolt Ups : Pinterest for the Gearhead Enthusiast

iCrowdNewswire - Aug 7, 2015

There is a social media site for almost everything. Need to connect with old friends? Log onto Facebook. Need to share a cool picture? Open up Instagram.

But where can you interact with like-minded motor and vehicle enthusiasts and the parts and accessories makers that bring these vehicles to life? You’ll go to Bolt Ups.

Bolt Ups is the place to connect with fellow vehicle and vessel-lovers to discuss all things motors. We provide a place to talk about your ride, your boat, your project, your playground, and your passion…with people just like you.


Picture this: you and your friend have just gone off-roading in a Jeep. You took some cool pictures of the car thrashing through mud to show off the new wheels or the new lift kit you added.

Where would you put a picture like this? You’ve been on sites like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest. Though they’re great for connecting with people, these sites aren’t great for connecting with people about the one thing you really love: vehicles and vessels and the lifestyle that supports them. 

Not only that, but those sites don’t give you access to the articles, services, or even just cool pictures about the vehicles you really care about.

So, whether you like to speed down the highway in your sports car, boating on the weekends, or barrel down a snowy slope, Bolt Ups helps you connect with people who share your interests on one all-inclusive place.


Gearheads love their vehicles and vessels and all the parts, components and accessories that make them unique, right down to talking and swapping information on specs and brands.

With millions of motorsport enthusiasts throughout the U.S., Boltups.com recognizes that – until now – there was no website that combines and offers Peer-2-Peer (P2P) interaction, detailed information on projects and builds, classified ads, news, events, and social networking to collectively serve to this enormous group of consumers and businesses in the aftermarket space.

Bolt Ups has confirmed the strong and growing market for online automotive parts and aftermarket accessories for vehicles and vessels:

The Online Automotive Parts and Accessories Sales industry is in the growth stage of its life cycle.

  • Over the next three years to 2018, the aftermarket industry’s contribution to the U.S. economy is projected to grow at an average annual rate of 5.9 percent to $3.3 billion. Comparatively, US GDP is expected to increase at an annualized rate of 2.1 percent.
  • The continued shift by consumers toward online retail channels, combined with technological change, indicates a growing industry.

Investors Are Already Fueling Bolt Ups’ Growth.

With a $1 million funding goal, $350,000 has already been raised to fund Bolt Up’s development. These dollars are helping Bolt Ups complete the last and most feature-laden phase of the website, and has secured Bolt Ups’ attendance at The 2015 SEMA Show and 2nd Annual SEMA Ignited Consumer Show 2015.

We know whom we serve, but just as important is how we serve them.

With our unique platform, Bolt Ups combines picture and video sharing, project builds, classifieds, forums, sales, events, clubs, news, blogging and vlogging all in one place.

And you’re not simply consuming information. You can interact with other users and share your own content. 

If you want information, assistance, entertainment, or even interaction, Bolt Ups is the place for you to connect with other vehicle lovers and share your passion.


Bolt Ups makes it simple for you to connect with like minded enthusiasts, whether you’re using our website at home or our app (coming soon) while on the go.

We understand that any element can become a playground for your motor vehicles and vessels, so we make it easy to narrow your search by these playgrounds: Dirt Asphalt, H2O, & Snow.

What’s your playground? Is it water on the weekends? Is it asphalt with a new sports car? Whatever your playground, we have a specific section to make it easier than ever to find the things you love.

We understand that some days, you’re going to want to get information quickly, and other days, you just want to be entertained. Just by scrolling through the news feed of pictures and videos, you’ll be able to easily connect with other enthusiasts like you as well as companies who can help. 

Our iOS and Android app will have all the features of our online site… and a few more. Not only can you search through the latest vehicle content, but also with the mobile app, you can use our Instagram-like feature to upload photos to Bolt Ups or any other social media site.

Never before has there been a social media site as informed or as inclusive as Bolt Ups! We help bring together the community of people to help you stay informed, entertained, and included when it comes to vehicles and vessels. 


As the website and the iOS and Android app enter final development, we’ll be sharing these fully functional assets with many more users. The platform has already proven to be stable, and membership is already growing in the current beta stage. Each day, the site activity continues to grow.

We have developed a website with a select group of users and soon a fully-functional app. The platform has proven to be stable, and membership is already twice as big as expected! Each day, the site activity continues to grow.

Our goal is to create a global brand that’s easily identified, one that vehicle and vessel lovers from all over the world will use and love, but we need your help to do that.
