Who I am?

My name is Pep Pladeveya and I am the #600Independent's owner.

The idea of the independent car was born in 2011 to help explain the wish for Catalonia's Independence.

With this idea and a great car, we have been everywhere!


The Story

In 2010, I bought an old and rusty Seat 600 with the intention to retore it, starting by painting with the independence flag we call 'Estelada'. With this, I was hoping to add my own little grain of sand to the Catalan Independentist Movement.


Since then, the #600Independent and I have participated in all types of events to support the Independence Cause. We have been to fairs, parties, meetings, demonstrations, concerts, talks and solidarity events like "Trailwalker" and "Oncotrail".

Wherever we go the #600Independent is a hit! People have taken numerous photos with it, sit in it and some have even taken it for a spin.

This is why #600Independent was born, to be the 600 of the people, it is my own joy to see that other's feel the same emotion.



In 2014 we drove to Brussels to support the right to decide for the Catalan people. This was a big challenge for such a small and old car... however it did very well.


In 2015 we drove to Scotland to support the independence movement.

The 600 endured it like a champion!


Last year, in 2017, we went to Brussels for a second time. We participated in the large demonstration organized by Omplim Brussel.les. Unfortunately, on our way back at home, we suffered an accident and the car was damaged badly.


The #600Independent has become an icon of the independence process. Many have been, able to enjoy it and for me, it is like the effort and persistence of the Catalan people.

The car’s license plate is from Madrid (represented by an “M”) and it is often questioned. It symbolizes the integration between those born outside of Catalonia, who become Catalan in their heart and identify themselves with the Catalan nation, too. You should know that I bought it on purpose in Madrid!

During these years, the 600 needed an extensive list of upgrades, and maintenance which represent a significant expense. Hence, I sold T-Shirts, keychains, cups and small cars to sustain the costs, all in a very amateur and non-profit manner.

Now we ask for your collaboration!

When we had the accident, many reached out to help us fix the car, so we can drive it again. The #600Independent is the 600 of the people and a symbol of our fight. After much deliberation on how to go about this, we have decided to begin a merchandising campaign. The aim of this campaign is to finance the work to be done, and to find a way to fund regular car maintenance.

We will produce Keychains, Cups and T-Shirts with the image of the #600Independent and also a limited edition of small cars.

This will allow everyone wanting to help fix the 600 get their own special memory.

Those with the largest contributions will get a ride in the car!

For us, all patrons and contributors are very important, however, those funding the project in larger sums will get a larger reward back. It is with this in mind, that we are willing to share our home with them as well, so we can get to know our donors better.

We have an awesome wood oven at home to make homemade bread and pizzas, and my wife and I will delight you and a group of up to 10-12 people to join us! You decide whom to bring.

Next up, for those coming up with extraordinary contributions, besides a day of bread and pizzas, we will invite you to enjoy a weekend in our home, located in the middle of a rural lovely setting, because we want to know you better!

Planned calendar

As soon as we get all deposits via Verkami's (our contribution platform) we will begin to distribute all rewards according to the sums of the contributions. This means that within a couple of months we promise to send you your reward.

Regarding getting a car ride in the 600, we will need to wait until the car is fully functioning. For that, we will keep you appraised of our progress. We hope to get all work done under 6 months.

Thank you every one for your contributions!

Realment, quan actuem de manera organitzada i amb una motivació al davant, som invencibles, no hi ha aturador possible. És el poder del treball de formigueta.

No tinc cap dubte que com a país ens en sortirem! //*//

Amb els 4000€ del Primer Objectiu assolim el projecte d'iniciar una campanya de merxandatge del #600Independent, això vol dir que tots els que heu fet aportacions ja teniu garantida la vostra recompensa, per tant PRIMER OBJECTIU ASSOLIT.
