Please see attached, I have a model VehicleType

class VehicleType extends DataObject
    static $db = array (
        'VehicleTypeName' => 'Varchar(255)',
        'VehicleRegRequired'  => 'Boolean'

    static $has_one = array(

    static $has_many = array(
        'Tariffs' => 'Tariff'

    static $searchable_fields = array(

   static $summary_fields = array(

When I create a new Vehicle type in admin it says "Saved #1". I want to to say "Saved "Car"" instead. Is this possible?

You should be able to do it like this:

public function getTitle() {
	return $this->VehicleTypeName;
