The black cylinder is your charcoal canister, which takes guzzoline vapors from the tank and keeps them from going outside to make smaug. The thin nylon line going to the middle of the charcoal canister is the line from the fuel tank. The fat rubber hose should go to the intake, somehow. I forget exactly where it would hook up. Could be that's the cause of some vac leak, but it could equally likely be the work of some previous owner's messing with the car. Charcoal canisters don't negatively affect performance, and in a car this old a bad one won't trigger a check engine light.
