advice on a rusted bike

I was rummaging my favorite junk bike place the other day and there was an old Raleigh of england road bike sitting there. It looks like it has been sitting in this outdoor bike pile for many years. It appeared to be dent free but scratched and scuffed really bad and had light surface rust all over. It would most definitely need a blasting and re paint. It said something on the top tube or headtube about team Raleigh winning the 78 or 79 Tour De France. The front wheel was missing too. Is this bike worth doing anything with in that kind of condition? I personally don't want to spend money on it but I hate to see it laying there rusting away.
