Right now I currently am a webmaster for a website that is 7 years old. The site has over 3k pages and gets about 80k unique visitors per month.
This is all good and well and the site has been about doubling every year as I make the site better on a continuous basis. However, there's only so much 1 person can do and I want to grow to be in the top 100k most popular sites and make tons of money :-)
My question is would you suggest to move a site that is primarily page by page HTML createde with minimal css and custom PHP programming, transfer to a CMS style website? This is being recommended to me by a SEO company and would appreciate any feedback from all the W.W. faithful.

What does this mean? If it means you can't write enough, create enough, and want others to take up the slack, okay... been there many times. If that also means my created code is a bit arcane and difficult for hired writers to insert new content then a more commonly used CMS might be a solution. There's quite a few choices out there.

This sounds like a act of faith to me. Your stats seem Ok to me. Try redoing a few pages "CMS like" whatever that means and see how it changes there ranking. w3c compatible is good but unlikely to effect ranking much.
