get_FIELD_display in backend doesn't respect FIELD's name or verbose_name

colour_choices = [(0, 'red'), (1, 'blue'), (2, 'green')]

class Car(models.Model):
    colour = models.IntegerField(name='colour', verbose_name='Primary Colour', choices=colour_choices)

    class Admin:
        list_display=['name', 'year', 'make', 'model', 'get_colour_display']

In the Admin panel, the final field is titled "Get Colour Display", and no amount of effort can convince it otherwise.

There's nothing to suggest it should behave like this. You're hoping it might, but it isn't really worth the extra code when there's already a way to set the title. When you use a function in the list_display list it uses the short_description attribute on the function for the title, otherwise a reasonable default is used. This is documented and the versions of get_FIELD_display() created automatically are no different int his respect.
