While Mr. Vuitton is long dead, his brand lives on (more than 150 years and going strong). Louis Vuitton has been very aggressive in pursuing counterfeit or knock off products (luggage, hand bags, wallets, etc.) bearing the iconic “LV” monogram and signature brown and gold pallet.
The luxury goods/fashion house lawyers probably won’t be chasing the owner of this “branded” vehicle for royalties. Just from the looks of things, the owner probably isn’t rich. In LA, painting your car like this is a plea to “look at me” and “hire me.” Hey, it’s Hollywood, right?

This Louis Vuitton Olds reminds me of cars customized by wanna be actor/writer/director/producer Dennis Woodruff who drives around LA with cars like this:
