Is the whole thing worth repairing?
Bubbles are not a good sign. As mentioned, you probably have a damaged head gasket and it will not be a cheap fix. On top of that, you have to take care of the coolant leak and / or overtemp situation that started this whole thing.
Whether it's worth fixing or not is up to you. If the car is a basket case, you may be better off finding someone, anyone, to take it off your hands. In its current state it's not worth anything so you would basically be walking away. If it's in good shape, it would be worth it to have it fixed as it will be cheaper than buying a troublefree vehicle and you could sell it for market value down the line.
