I imagine it is a decal, if it is, my dad used to do body work and just used a heat gun (blow dryer works) to get the glue soft and you just pull it off slowly. Then you wash and buff it to make sure the lines from the weather smooth out and you are good to go.

like cogs said, if its not a painted pinstripe, all you do is heat it up, pull it off

maybe some "goo-remover" to get rid of the extra glue (becareful some might hurt the paint, so try it in a spot you cant really see first)

even when you pull it off the paint underneath will be darker then the rest of the car, probably wont be too noticable, but a good wash, and HAND WAX, it will look sharp!

Good luck!

i would be wary of the underlying paint looking darker due to sun fade of the expose paint. I might look worse if you take it off.

Use a heat gun or good hair dryer to warm the area.
Use a fingernail to peel back the graphic and remove.
Use a bit of petrol/gas on a clean cotton cloth, scrapping stubborn bits lightly with your fingernail to remove the "goo".
If lightly discoloured use a light finishing compound like 3M Finesse to polish the immediate area in circular motions. Do it by hand, don't use a mop.
Finish with a good resin polish and that should do the trick.
My pennies worth.
