Should I repaint my car?

Should I get my car repainted? I have a '97 Toyota Corolla, dark green. The clear coat on the hood and front bumper is starting to peel pretty badly, though the paint underneath seems okay.

So there are two questions--
One, do I need to repaint it for actual structural reasons?
Two, if I do repaint it, will it look terrible unless I spend a lot of money?
I kind of don't like it looking this way, but since it's a pretty old car I don't see the point in spending thousands of dollars. If I go somewhere like Earl Scheib, will it end up worse than before? I could see spending maybe $500.
