The Yellowbird's decals are almost identical to the 1979 Redbird's. Both used gold accents, and all the locations of stripes are the same. (The Yellowbird had a sail panel bird on its tail whether or not you had the spoiler).

New for 1980, the Yellowbird became the third and final color scheme for the Esprit appearance package. Like the Skybird, the Yellowbird is a very bright package that's not at all masculine. Yellowbirds are much more rare than Skybirds and Redbirds. Yellowbirds used RPO W73.
Yellow snowflakes hadn't been used at all before 1980, but body-colored Rally II's had been very popular on yellow Firebirds like the yellow Formula W50.
Pontiac had figured out that color-coordinated wheels on a yellow car were great styling, and these wheels really make the Yellowbird stand out. Since there was no longer any reason to use red wheel emblems, the Yellowbird also has the gold wheel emblems like a Trans Am Special Edition.
