How bad is the rust on this car?

The engine compartment looks fairly dirty, but I'm guessing these are early pics.  The routing of the vacuum hose to the EGR valve is interesting.  The hoses to/by the PCV look differently from what I remember.

The vacuum line to the EGR is stock.  The rubber hoses from the PCV valve are where Dave made modifications for his water vapor separator.  It pulls the oil vapors through a separator, then the fresh cleaned air is pulled back into the engine.  A regular PCV setup will let some of these vapors pass and be pulled back into the throttlebody.  His system condenses the vapors, catches them in a container that gets emptied as needed. 

Forgot to say that the car's rust free.  Maybe the battery tray has some rust, but the rest of the body is solid and clean.  Those pictures of the engine were taken when we first got the car after having been sitting in his back yard for 3 or 4 years.

I meant the routing of the EGR vacuum hose.  I don't remember mine hanging up like that.

That's a good idea with removing moisture.

I'm curious what his plans were, for the car.  Even the intake is stripped, it seems, or perhaps painted in primer, also.  Was the owner intending for this to be permanent?

It might have an interim to a paint job before his accident.  He sold the car to another of our club members and he drove it for many years until donating it to the club.
