    would go vs would be going

    1)"If it wasn't this late, I would go to Joe's."

    OR

    2)"If it wasn't this late, I would be going to Joe's."

    OR

    3) "If it weren't this late, I would be going to Joe's."

    OR

    4) "If it weren't this late, I would go to Joe's."

    Which would sound natural to you?
