Boston is famous for having what is called a non rhotic accent, which means that Rs are not pronounced in words such as car and enter. Another nearby area where people speak with a non rhotic accent is New York. Someone went around Boston and held up “ah” where “ar” or “er” appeared and much hilarity ensued 😀
