Ive never seen a chrome antenna on a 4th gen, factory or aftermarket.
Mine is black, black is stock.

There is a TSB related to Firebird antennas shedding paint. If a Firebird antenna is chrome, it's either not original or a PISA.

Your friend is incorrect. They came in black on these cars from the factory.

As said above, black is the correct color. I put an override switch to keep it down. This way when I am using the cd player the antenna isn't up, since it goes up as soon as you turn the radio on. I always kind thought the antennas make them look like RC car lol.
